Sam, I don't understand your enmity. Anyway, your Schoolbook Chess is not really a new invention. You have only set up the pieces differently. Comparatively, I have done a much more thorough job. I've invented new pieces, programmed and tested them, for almost every variant. This should make them quite interesting for the mathematician and chessplayer. Have you tried the Adjutant or the Correlator, yet? I have also studied the variants thoroughly enough to know that they are, in my judgement, much more playable than any Capablanca variant. These are not merely new variants, they also introduce new pieces, which make them considerably more innovative than merely a rearrangement of the Capablanca setup. You should at least be able to give me some credit for my new pieces.
