George Duke, did yu know that Chess with different armies is not the first
chess game with diffirent armies? I think, Drop chess is even a bit more
interesting than CWDA. CWDA, of course, also have good points: it can be
played with standart chess set. I think, CWDA is good when you want to play
game, wich is close to chess, and DC is good if you want to play new game.
Actually, i don't think that this game is 'excellent', my real opinion
is 'good', i just don't want it's avarage rating be 'below average'.

'DEF,LargeCV': 'Drop Chess' a misnomer, it is a Chess-Different-Armies copycat. Nine armies mean eighty-one new games. None of Ralph Betza's elan or panache here, no Betza-style reasoning and rigour. 'I would just like someone's else's opinion if the armies are equally balanced or not' --McKinnis. Sweep this one aside and start from scratch if wanting to add teams to 25-year-old Chess-Unequal-Armies.
