I just want to say that I am quite impressed with Clockwork Orange Chess. It is easy to play and the Shogi-like drop of active and neutral pieces adds a great deal to the tactical and strategic arena. I appreciate the allegorical aspect of the game. Its relation to the Clockwork Orange story is both intriguing and carries a subtle humorous tone. I saw the movie... but now feel inclined to read the book. If a remake of Clockwork Orange is made, I think that to have a few characters in the movie playing Clockwork Orange Chess would be a very nice touch. Thank you Fergus Duniho, for bringing us this enjoyable and clever variant.
