Chesimal Fusion I. Missing description (16x12) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]
George Duke wrote on 2008-03-21 UTCPoor ★
We had to click several times to see what inconsiderate commenters are just referring to as 'War Machine' or War Tower -- as if others have their catchy terminology too. Here in Chesimal Fusion I, lowered to Poor mostly for oversizing and also for having too many units for a given piece-type, War Machine is revealed as old-hat compound Wazir + Dabbabah, the same as 'Dababba' elsewhere of this author. Examples of prior use of (W + D) abound, as by Ralph Betza with Woody Rook in Chess Different Armies(1980) and by Roberto Lavieri with Lion Man in Altair (2003).
