Warp Point Chess turns out to have a very similar feel to it as Knight Relay Chess. They both contain uncapturable / uncapturing knights that weirdly impact other pieces. The gameplay suffers, in both cases, from leaving the rest of the board sparser by exempting two live pieces to work with. An expanded board with more varying types of uncapturable, weirdly impacting pieces would benefit the gameplay of both types of games. However, these games are good ways of familiarizing oneself with warp points and relay knights.
