The previous 'Good' is for Quang Trung Chess, an okay-enough embodiment. The inventor says about the 'Ship' added in Bach Dang, 'Please figure out why it is so!', dividing board into quadrants. Answer: to visualize 45-degree and 225-degree turns. One group of Ship's destination squares is 'Zebra squares' at (2,3) distance from departure square. Ship is a failed piece, worsening Quang Trung. QT establishes unique alternative winning condition: Pawn in the last row remaining uncaptured. That is the sense of the special c to h range. Maybe Excellent were QT played.
