Only one Comment (Jeremy Good's) in over 3 years. Teleporting here is not too wild through only four transporter cells. All Orthodox pieces present except Queen give anyone foothold of familiarity right away. Xiangqi Cannon can convert to Canon: for professionals that's Pao and Vao. Jack needs to be strengthened because its one-stepping serves mostly as blocker. Movement out of the ''Eye,'' when opened, the symmetric square along rank, has to be unique. (JKLLargeCV)
