Thanks Carlos!

I'm honored to see my Ajax Chessmen migrating into other inventors variants.

Sure I accept your challenge for Ajax Bigamous Chess. Send me an invite.

My preference would be with Ministers, but Ajax Bigamous Chess is your variant, so I will play it according to your rules.

You can easily make a Game Courier preset for Ajax Bigamous Chess that enforces game rules using the code from my Ajax Orthodox Chess preset.

Let me know if you need any help building the Game Courier preset.

The additional Commoner moves to rooks, knights and bishops increases the complexity of the game in a manner so exquisite that immediately induces me to transfer the concept to the symmetric setup on a 9x8 board.

José: Would you like to try it? I bring forward a fantastic game! We could play it with or without dropping ministers, as you like.

Following Fergus's suggestion for naming the symmetric setup, I would name this new variant: Ajax Bigamous Chess.
