I highly recommend this variant, especially for those who like games that are closer to traditional Fide Chess. The bigger board and cannon-like bomber pieces [with 2 modes of capture] make for a pretty exciting game. What would be a great pawn center in traditional chess can end up being a bombed target in this game... I realized this too late in my game with its inventor and had to fight hard to to escape the clutches of defeat and obtain a draw. Some players don't like draws; but I imagine draws will be rare in this game. The bombers have been modified -- so the ones we used in our game are more powerful than the ones that will be used from now on. The new bombers will make the task of defending from them a bit easier; but I did not mind the bombers the way they were. Great game.
