This is a double excellent for this game.

The first excellent goes to Hans for digging this game out and posting it here.

The second goes to the game design: The inventor has really thought hard of the initial position, and it makes a fine game. There is a lot of tactical tension in the setup, but there are no obvious exploits. Great game!
