Hey, Rich. We've played several games in Poughkeepsie recently. That was a nice little game - little in that the number of pieces is quite low. We used the queen, chancellor, and archbishop, with the 'racing kings' optional rule. [Heh, you won that game, too. When are we going to talk about the games I won?!? :-D ] It's a nice game, fast-paced, with some twists and turns. I enjoyed it. Initial placement is important, and varies according to the particular rules used. This is what for wargames was called a 'beer and pretzels' game.
