Asylum Redux. Featuring dual path Zebra / Camel crooked sliders compounded with Bishop / Rook.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Thanks for your comment, Matt. 
Actually the dual path pieces here are a bit different from the duke, cavalier. Its more like a dual path zebra compounded with bishop and a dual path camel compounded with rook. 
I will have an upcoming game that does feature very similar pieces to duke/cavalier though.

I guess you really do like Rennchess after all! It's great that you've put a Rennchess Cavalier and a Duke into one of your games. They are challenging, yet very interesting pieces.

 As I recall, you were a little skeptical about Rennchess initially, much as you were, earlier, about Cazaux's Tolousian chess.. Now, some of the pieces and a few of the ideas from those games are in several of your new games, with the the gryphon and the aanca permutations, and the increase in pawns being the most salient. Hopefully, when I can finally get off my duff, I'll finish the presets for both Eric Greenwood's new Rennchess II, plus a game of my design, tentatively called The Watchers. Hopefully, you'll try those as well. I think you would really like Rennchess II.

By the way, do you happen to know what became of Eric? He has been AWOL from this site for some tome now.
