Re Chas. Gilman's comment, Cagliostro's is fairly interesting mix of standard compound pieces. When there becomes a predominant mainstream replacement for 64-sq. Orthodox--versus CVP's Googol (10^100) and more possibilities [See recent comments under random chesses, Deployment and Slide Shuffle]--most likely it will have time-honoured, paired R, B, and N, as Orthodox, and such as Capablanca's, Grand, Omega, Falcon and Gothic, on expanded board. Here in Cagliostro's, the idea extends the pairing to Archbishop (B, N) and includes one General (=Amazon = R,N,B). Its fully twelve files, however, as realistic sequel and serious study, may belong to distant future, despite precedent in regional, long-lived Courier Chess.

The names of the compound pieces suggest that this is a further development of Capablanca's Chess, as does Florida's geographic proximity to Cuba. Is this the case?
