I've added (to the Notes Section of this game's page) a paragraph about the mutator variant possibility of substituting champions (also known as WADs) for the waffle pieces used in this variant, in case anyone ever wishes to experiment. I've also made a note that a WAD+K can force mate against a lone K on a 12x8 board, as Dr. Muller once related.

[edit: Note that another mutator variant idea of mine (Wide Frog Chess) would be Wide Chess to be played with Frogs in place of the Lieutenants in the setup. Frogs move like threeleapers (leap 3 cells by rank or by file) or move like ferz' (stepping one cell diagonally). On 12x8 I'd put a frog at 3.33(or 3.5 approx.).]
