I played it again after long time and regret having given a bad rate to it. Formerly I didn't like that all games are attacks of both opponents on their right side while defending on their left side. Now trying it out again in fact I see no wrong with this predestined mutual races. Also the ensemble of pieces is well well chosen and work well together, like in all of Paulowitch's variants that I know. Although far inferior to FIDE chess it is a nice try.

Looks nice, but doesn't work well. Every game I played was like the other.

This looks like a fantastic game (i.e., from looking at the piece dynamics, including that powerful War Machine). Roberto Lavieri's impressive 'Galactic Graphics' are a perfect fit for it. I'm looking forward to seeing this game get some action. Well done!
