Dandalo, do send me an email, would you? [email protected] Or get a user ID and let me know what it is. I want to play games over email with you and communicate with you at greater depth.

If Iron Guard is colorchanging, this game would be pointless. White would always win because it would be a race to see which side could reach the king first and that would be White. [It wouldn't just 'contend with the queen' it would be almost infinitely more powerful than the queen. The nearly invincible Mamra is worth quite a bit more than the queen. I often successfully sac my Queen in that game.]

If Iron Grard can move one square diagonally, or straight forward as Silver General in Shogi, it will be able to contend with Queen.
