On 10 by 10 board with new pieces. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]David Paulowich wrote on 2005-08-31 UTCMy bad - was not expecting 29 pieces per side. I don't run JAVA on my computer and sometimes forget to check the source code for ffen2diag2. Strange initial setup: Kings on the e-file, White has a 'Queen's Camel', Black has a 'King's Camel'.

Greg Strong wrote on 2005-06-30 UTCPoor ★This game has a line of pawns on the third rank, and super-pawns on the second rank (pawn+knight). These pieces can defend each other like crazy, and you would have to sacrafice your pawns like crazy to smash through so formidable a defense. And the remaining pieces aren't very powerful at all. It seems to me that defense is clearly superior to offense in this game. 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
