Thanks for your comment and rating.

I have noticed a large error in the paragraph by the first wizmate
example.  The wizard on the left can only execute wizmate by moving
southeast.  The wizard on the right can only execute wizmate by moving
directly west or southwest.  Therefore, there are only three
possibilities, not eight as I had assumed before taking the king's
black-line route into account.

Clever use of the end cells: reminiscent of hydrogen in the Periodic Table! It would be more logical for 'Wizmate' to be specifically carried out ON a Wizard, rather than BY a Wizard to a King, leaving the latter as Checkmate.
