Although it has been years since I last visited "Chess Variants", it is good to see it still lives! I agree with John Smith's comments regarding the weakness of the horse, camel, and elephant. I would suggest that they be given both the double space move and the corresponding single space move. Perhaps restricting the double space moves to jumps would be a good idea as well. Cheers!
