Interesting game, Mats. What is sufficient mating material?

I have discarded several of my piece inventions because they were somehow awkward , and I first discarded the Divaricator, too. But then I realized that it is possibly a useful piece. One feature is that it can capture without exposing itself to capture. I thought that this would disrupt the natural flow of the game, but it cannot expose itself to the light pieces and pawns. Interestingly, K + Divaricator versus K is won. Maybee it is even more valuable than 4.
