Hanga Roa is a chess variant inspired by the people of Easter Island. By assigning referee's job to the computer player, AI play has been much improved in this version over the previous ZRF. For convenience, two additional setups are provided each for human playing White or Black. The original script (v1.0) is also included as a variant since that version is more suited for two human players (an independent referee player does necessary housekeepngs).
