Here is another game I would rate as 'good' I don't give any style points for coming up with new pieces, these have all been used before. I am concerned that the mobility of the pieces will be restricted by the 4 by 4 gap in the middle of the board. This game is not the only game to use the idea of a 10 by 10 board with the middle 16 square field a gap which cannot be used to hold pieces, sometimes can be jumped by pieces but in this game cannot be jumped. Still, any game which I don't find overly confusing about how to play it I have to at least grade as 'good' <p>

Thanks for answering my questions. I now get a better feeling
for the tree garden atmosphere. The variant with marquesses looks
interesting since the marquesses, alltho weak, can shift quickly
from one part of the garden to the other.
