Pieces are too cramped and Queens on a 2 x 2 board make for an overpowered game. Kings have no opportunity for creating luft, nor can they move out of checkmate. Rules are overly restrictive: Prohibition against captures makes for a boring game and absence of legal moves makes games too short and deciding the victor too confusing. Also size of game blurs difference in powers of pieces, making for too much monotony. Game might benefit from more squares and pieces, less restrictive rules.
