I agree. Although it wasn't one of my favourite games, I wouldn't rush to
lable it 'poor'. I think the board and the pieces placement was quite
nice, my quirk with it is that there are too much power pieces located on
what is a very small and limited board. I agree it is a manner of taste, I
use very restricted pieces in my small board designs, but if one likes to
play a game of power, kill-or-be-killed, then this variant offers a nice
solution.

There does seem to be a problem with the image, though.
