Hi Graeme!  I'm delighted to see this variant.  I've been mucking around with a few trigonal boards myself, so I'm glad to see you cut the trail for me.  Just one comment: I notice that you've made the Queen a combination of Spire and Bishop.  That makes the Queen scarcely more powerful than the Tower (a Rook-like piece).  Have you considered a Spire-Tower combination for the Queen?  That would make a much more powerful piece worthy of the name, in my opinion.  You could still keep the present Queen, but perhaps change her name to something else.

And by the way, could we get a Zillions program to play this game?

Keep up the good work!
