In response to Charles Gilman and your question about the bishop.
It becomes considerably more powerful here as compared to on a
conventional chess board. There is virtually unrestricted movement around
the board when unimpeded. It is really not that much more powerful than
other pieces as the queen and rook have unlimited movement as well.

It is always interesting to see variants that unbind Bishops by changing the board rather than the move. How much more powerful do Bishops become in this game, cvompared to other pieces?
