I appreciate your feedback. I fixed the error in the Pawn description and made the Pawns look like Chinese Pawns, which helps keep their movement in mind.

This game is tactically tricky because of discovered Javelins. I also like the idea of the weaker, forward-capturing Pawn with the Javelins helping defend them.

this looks interesting too, i like the javelin and the way it captures and
disappears after capture.
i think you might have an error, to do with the pawns. you say that it
captures forward (except when en passant) but if you right-click on pawn
and select 'properties' it says that it can capture diagonally also.
oh, i just noticed it also says in 'help' (mouse over piece to give 
description) that pawns capture diagonally
i'll check this game out soon.
edited: tough to play (for me anyway he he) .. plays good :)
