Variant revised, though not the description...

The reason I've expanded the board to 10 ranks is to have a more flexible opening. My reason for the rating is to show what the game is; average.

Out of nowhere John Smith has three dozen CVs before anyone noticed, on track to exceed Betza and take a shot at Gilman. Here's one easy to get a quick handle on. Sure, Grasshopper and Nightrider on 8x10 suit fine. Grasshoppers have been used before as a Pawn contingent in Joseph Boyer's own Grasshopper Chess, the piece having been discovered by Dawson. Boyer and Parton are the Frenchmen problemists turned variantists mid-20th century.

The Grasshoper's an interesting piece, had not heard of it before. Cheers for the read.
