'DEF,LargeCV': 256 squares. 'The 3rd to 14th rows start off empty.' Of seven piece-types, five are described in Betza funny notation. On 16x16 some pieces (not Pawns) have directional ranges of one square. King is 'BRAND'. So, King goes like Bishop or Rook or Knight or Alfil or Dabbabah. That way games will last a lot longer.
