There is a larger version of the image which looks better.

Though the movement grids are difficult to discern for my colourblind eyes.

The problem with the image is that it is small and low-resolution. Zooming it to a larger size helps a bit, but its low resolution limits how effective that is. Ideally, the graphics need to be redone.

The text is much better than before, but my point about the picture of the movement diagrams still stands.

Since the source was broken up into paragraphs, I resaved it as Markdown after adding in ### before some lines for H3 tags.

Unfortunately, the quality of this page is severely lacking. Most of the page is just text, and that text isn't even separated into paragraphs to make reading easier. Furthermore, the few pictures that are present do not describe the game very well, and in particular, the picture describing the piece movements is so tiny that it is impossible to map the piece movements to the pieces in the setup photo. TBH, as it is now, I'm amazed that this paged even got approved in the first place.

That being said, having multi-capturing pieces in a variant with drops is quite an interesting idea that I have never seen before. I am thinking about doing something similar in the future.

This game, I have not noticed before and seems a neat idea but lack of pictures really makes move remembering difficult :(!
