well i didn't invent this game, Joe Joyce did, i just helped write the
zrf, so i think it is ok that i rate. 
this is a great game, fairly similiar to shatranj, which it is based on.
The alfil also has the fers move, and the fers also has the wazir move,
which makes it move as a king (called a general in this game).
you can also promote pawns to a lost piece, so in a sense, this game plays
more dynamic than shatranj.
this game is also played on game courier here.
