Thanks for starting this game!

These graphics look excellent. Just so we understand the spy (like on c2 and c8) moves like a king. (This is called a guard in many other games).

The "Elite-guard" (like on a2, b2 and a9 b9) can jump 1 or 2 squares in any direction (vertical, horizontal, and diagonal), in a straight line only.

It's been awhile since I played, so I just want to make sure we understand the graphics and the pieces.

If I ever designed a variant I would never put four knights in a line. But this game has four knights in a line (d2, e2, f2 g2, etc) and I really like it!

@vickalan chess.com is giving me an SSL error *most* of the day so my move might be delayed.
