'ABCLargeCV': 'The middle four columns of the central rows cannot be crossed.' Unusual way to add to 100 sqs., the odd array is relatable to two 84-sq. ones: yesterday's Cross-Eyed Chess and also Viking Chess, where both B & W arrays face the same direction. Any Random Chess serves the same purpose for those who cannot let go. Pawn's going laterally too makes it playable: Average, not worth a Poor because we reserve that for real botch-ups.
