Mir Chess. Missing description (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I find Mir32 to be an excellent game... quite fun. The 8 x 8 board is comfortable for the armies employed. The Elephants, like 2-step Bishops which retain the Shatranj Elephant leap are great pieces with lots of potential. The single Cannon adds a lot to think about, as does the General (which moves like the Dragon Horse in Shogi). The best way to open remains a mystery to me. I think this game would be a great contender for a future CV multi-game tournament, or even a single-game tournament. I hope other CV members will give this one a try. Well done David!
