I'm not going to go all math and discuss what learning curves are or what
they should be. I played this game face-to-face, and I found it very easy
to learn, play, and enjoy. Usually it takes me awhile to learn games with
many different piece types, especialy when many of the pieces are
combo-pieces, or extermely powerful pieces. 
I can probably conjecture until the sun comes as to why I found this game
relatively easy to learn. Could be the simple patterns of the legal moves
of the pieces, or the fact that even some of the 'new' pieces are minor
variants of existing pieces. Could be the ASCII art for all I know. 
The thing is, I found it easy to learn.
