I like it. I wish there were more solitaire variants. I also like Queen's Quadrille, and already submitted some solitaire variant similar to it.

Is it game for one player?

Andy, I only just now peeked in and saw that Hippodrome was listed here. 
I'm so glad; I thought it was a great game when you described it to me
back in '02.

I've tried this several times and it was quite enjoyable.  

A variant I tried was placing all four bishops along the opposite sides
that the knights were on, then removing a rook, king, or queen.  Then,
had to swap the knights and bishops. A bit harder, but still very

It is interesting how different pieces work in this game.  Rooks adjacent
to each other are quite mobile and work well, whereas the bishops can be
inconvenient.  Kings and Queens are the most mobile, so it is more
difficult and interesting if you remove one of them.
