I added a link to play in the notes. It's good to see some interest in this!

Thank you. I couldn't see it.

I hope this game will be coded to be played on Game Courier with enforced rules in next future

Should play well, it's nice to see you didn't 'overpower' it.

Looks nice and smart

I now agree with the given set-up.

I wouldn't switch courier and knight. The charm is to respect the historical setup of Courier chess. That position for the knight, next to the rook is not unusual to my eyes.

Interesting! Creative! Insightful! I do have one small thought: would you consider transposing the courier and the knight? The knight would then be in its usual position, where expert players use it to contest the center and protect the king and queen. The bishop, a long-distance runner, would probably do just as well near the edge.
