The Sissa is not well explained. I don't understand how this piece is supposed to move. I assume the piece you're calling a KnightRider is the one more commonly known as a Nightrider. I know how this piece moves, but I can imagine that someone who doesn't already know the piece wouldn't understand your description of it. You would do well to describe your games for a general audience that can be expected to know of no variant except Chess. This comes across as notes written for yourself. It is as sketchy as my grocery list. I can make it sketchy, because I know what I mean when I write down items like eggs and juice, but if I had someone else do my shopping for me, I would have to write it out in exact detail.
