The mode-changing by the SHS comes from Fourriere's Polypiece(2003) loosely in being automatic on certain conditions, and Polypiece stems from a Betza article. The mode-changing by flipping is from Fourriere's Jacks & Witches(2003) and the player decides optionally one way or the other. Later Transmitter Chess by Gifford uses different related concept. SHS here and Transmitters there, whether R, N, or B, both move as King. Activation of other pieces by Chieftain in Joyce's one later too is at least not unrelated to idea in Symmetron!, in Chieftain's having to be within 3 steps to activate, in perhaps Joyce's preferred form and SHS's here having to be within a certain one or two to effect. Lavieri had after this late 2004 and 2005 only Chess with Promoters, More10, Chess with Batteries, Multi-King, ZoneX, the Travelers, and Toccata. Most 'Lavieris' then are from year 2003.

Well, it is finally released after a lot of changes and refinements, and never-end discutions with Antoine, who has a lot of the credit in the final version, with notorious differences with my first proposal. The community is invited to try this game, Zillions is not a very strong player of this game, but if you try it with Zillions, you are going to have an idea of this game. You may be surprised, it is really good, although this afirmation should seem not too modest, it is sincere. I like it. It is a Preset too, so this game is available to play in Courier.
