I have not tested this game yet playing against another human, I have played it three times against Zillions (Program: 30 seconds for each move, at the maximum level), and I can say that Zillions is not a very strong player, in fact, in some moments the program seems to be unclear in what is going on, the modifier pieces are not well understood by Zillions. This interesting game seems not very easy to play well, it is very positional, there are three modifiers that make the game deep and complex, and Kings are extremely vulverable, so material is much less important in this game than in FIDE-Chess. I am extending an open invitation to try this game. I´m a novice, and my possible contendor surely is going to be novice too, so I can´t expect high quality in the game play in this first test, but I´m encouraged to try this difficult game in a first encounter human-human.
