I removed the hyperlinks.

When I see that one link on a preset page is larger and more prominent than the rest, my intuition is that this is to the preset. After all, that is what I come to a preset page looking for. But many preset pages are prominently featuring a link to the game rules at the top in large type, and that makes the page confusing to look at. It seems to me that if you are going to make any link on a preset page much more prominent than any other, it should be the link to the preset itself. As for the link to the game rules, it is automatically included at the bottom of the page, it is included in the preset, and it is suitable to include it in regular size type that describes in an introductory paragraph what game the preset is for.

Fergus, thanks for the tip. I have changes the link name for Pocket Mutation Chess and Anti-King Chess presets.

As a general rule, I recommend the practice of putting the game's name first in the link text for a preset. This is because the page that lists the presets sorts them in alphabetical order according to the link text. If you put the game's name first, people will be able to find the preset under the letter for the game instead of missing it because it got listed under G. So, for example, the link text for this page could be 'Pocket Mutation Chess Preset for Game Courier'.
