Jörg Knappen is right; I did not invent the Pincer Pawn, and I never said I
did.  So Ben Good made a mistake here.  The idea behind Ultima 
was to combine captures from various games into a single game.  So most 
of the other pieces came from other games.  But there were some I had 
to invent myself: The Immobilizer, the Chameleon, and the Coordinator.
