I think Dr. Eltis is hot, he's all I ever wanted in a man; humour, intelligence, generosity and he's very well-endowed as I'm sure Cristine will testify ;)

I think that this variant of chess is most indupitably perspicatious. It really reflects modern times at the moment, in a whimsical manner. Well done Dr. Eltis. Im sure he has a great play book collection.

I have tried this game briefly, and it is certainly playable. Game play seems to be nice, although it is not so easy play it in a good manner, it can need some expertise, if not, many moves can be blunders. I disagree a bit with the different ways of flying, particularily with respect to the difference between Rooks and Bishops. Regardless some previous comments in which the game itself is not well analysized, objectively this seems to be a moderately interesting game which can be rated as 'good', in my particular opinion.

I wrote the first review out of respect for the game and for it's inventor Dr. David Eltis I was therefore horrified to be castigated by 'Fergus Duniho' who wants me to add some more 'credibility' to my review. I made the review for the benefit of others and feel that it is unfair that I should be made to feel like a victim...I do, however, see your point when writing about such people as 'Ho Mosely' who clearly doesn't exist as he manages to use phrases such as 'peace out'. i would though like a bit more respect in the future, just because I am not a member doesn't mean that I should be treated like an outsider, I feel that my views are still useful.

I regularly meet up with Dr. David Eltis to play...he is such a fun loving man with some real wit..he is such a bubbly character I particularly enjoy his historic plays. Flying chest rules...peace out!

I couldn't agree more! Having met the man (David Eltis)in the flesh myself, I can honestly say that he is truly the most dedicated and inspired person I have ever known. The game itself adds another dimension (excuse the pun) to an already polished and hugely satisfying 'battle of wits', and my only sadness is that it hasn't been quicker in reaching the general public as a bonified chess variant. Verdict: a must try for all experienced chess-players!

I think David Eltis is a true visionary...flying chess...brilliant! I regularly get friends and family around to my house to play and needless to say we have fun.
