In the Notes section for 4D Quasi-Alice Chess, I've now added my own estimates for the relative values of Alice Chess pieces (also useful for 4D Quasi-Alice Chess), which are mostly just slightly different than the values I gave before, as provided by Zillions of Games (as given in the CVP webpage link for Alice Chess). At the least, my own (latest) values have nicer fractions, generally. I've also added my own estimate for the fighting value of an Alice Chess King (even though it cannot be exchanged); such an estimate of a King was not provided by Zillions of Games. I've also given my rationale for the way I reached my values.
