Looking at 80 squares Knavish Chess, I don't see what the back ranks are good for. They contain very hard-to-develop pieces, and the templars (ND compunds) are also back in the game. Of course, you want to show something by your choices. The game just doesn't feel optimised for actual game play, which is a design goal I rate rather high. In case I cannot achieve it, I make it clear in the naming of the game: Nachtmahr is undertitled A study game.
