I realize 37-space Viking and Semedo are worlds apart. It is just the coincidence of names. Each thing has to be named something, and someone pointed out CVs are starting to run out of available names. I was wondering if the word Semedo means viking. The Viking Chess of 37 squares below is just sort of linked frivolously and informatively. But that one from 1966 or earlier may as well be called old or historical, originating before CVPage proliferation, when everyone is now obligated to make Cv after Cv, confusing interesting classical works in CVs -- like whatever all the CVs Hide puts into the 1694 book. Thanks for the book reference. The main cvpage Viking, as much as hneftafl, is actually editor Aronson's. Anyone can name more vikings as he or she pleases in accepted practice.
