It definitely is Beer and Bits in nature. It started out as a way to do 4 player chess on a regular chessboard, but has mainly been a two player game actually. Has a bunch of twists and turns. Perhaps the best way to think of it is as 'Desert Warfare' because there is a lot of mobility in the game and little resources.
