'ABCLargeCV': Two Couriers move modern-Bishop-like and with Rooks are the strongest pieces. One 'Man' is non-royal King-like mover. One 'Schleich' moves like Wazir (Weijden's 'Spy' of Novo Chess is more interesting). With or without the four-fold assize-mobilization shown in the other Courier Chess link, b-Pawns, i-Pawns, and k-Pawns are all unprotected in initial position. Quelle horreur! Three unguarded Pawns in array against four long-range units! Apparently Courier Chess culture lasted 600+ years.
