I am happy with your choice of name, Heavy Chess, Jean-Louis. I am seldom that good with picking names for CV inventions - I somewhat regret not having picked a spiffier name like Heavy Chess, instead of the name Sac Chess, that I used for the original 2 Amazons per side concept. The real advantage of calling it Sac Chess seems to be that one very often sacrifices pieces for ones of lesser value, so it has that meaning. Sac Chess also has a disadvantage I discovered later, that there is a company that sells chess equipment that uses the initials SAC.

I knew that Heavy Chess was far from being original, being strongly inspired by Sac Chess. But yesterday I realised that Kevin Pacey had even proposed exactly the same variant several years ago under the name of Royal Bevy Chess.

Therefore, I feel sorry and I have modified the text of this page to better credit him.
