Sam, you are being spurious. Of course, you are not seriously going to analyse that Mastodon Chess
variant, because it's a waste of time. It's equally useless as devoting time to a Capablanca
variant that nobody plays. Are you going to be bitter for the rest of your life because I
criticized your project? The whole point about that Mastodon variant was to create a mandala as a means
of inner expression. I see to that it works and that it satisfies my criteria for a good game. But,
as a whole, such constructs are expressions of psychic wholeness, a dynamic form of mandala.
They are not meant to be studied and analyzed. But it's entertaining to play a game or two
against the ZoG program.
