Paul Leno indicates in Comment three years ago ''We've been playing the game since 1997 when the Ruins was created and soon others will be too.'' I ask again, when using a Thief in the Night, does it transfer the Field of Influence on all levels, or only take pieces out of Medusa's range? And can Tonk's Chamber be pivoted without flanking Crystal? (GHILargeCV)

This game is extrodinary! I am interested in buying it. Is Strategy First going to produce it as a board or video game? If so when?

I have a feeling that this game has been cursed. If it ever comes out in a legible form I will be suppirsed.

Sheer brilliance! The mind boggles. Applying warfgaming to chess is a natural progression, why didn't someone think of it earlier? Although in the rules I learned, dismounting a Royal Guard was only allowed in a move following activation of an Armored Pawn (this could just be British rules, mind you). Players who enjoy Gridlock will likely also appreciate <a href='http://www.geocities.com/verdrahciretop/src.html'>Stanley Random Chess</a>, which can be played exclusively at SchemingMind.com. An annotated <a href='http://www.schemingmind.com/game.aspx?game_id=5786'>Exhibition Game</a> gives some idea of the game.

When using 'a Thief in the Knight', does it transfer the Field of Influence on all levels, or only take pieces out of Medusa's range? Is Armour pushed through Wall or Jump Gate? Thirdly, can Tonk's Chamber be pivoted without flanking Crystal?

Impressive and original. I can't claim to have absorbed all the rules and permutations, but it certainly sounds neat.
