It’s nice to see people moving beyond simple square and hex boards, but I think a 22x23 game is the rhombic equivalent of Tai shogi. Perhaps a smaller version of this variant would be good.

Of course, David’s next challenge is to make chess variants for all of the regular polygon tilings. Or, if that’s too ambitious, how about a chess variant for this tiling.

The possibilities are nearly endless...

You clearly put a lot of work into this, but I think it's hopeless. Difficult geometry compared to regular tilings, huge number of pieces, many of them with difficult or unclear moves. The chances of a human playing this strategically are almost zero.
