It could be a good idea to try the Gustavian board in cases where you could
use the standard 80-square board. Strategically it's a different game. The
knights remain equal in value to the bishops. The pawns retain their
strategical importance as there are only eight of them. The Gustavian
board allows less free space to the Archbishop and the Chancellor and so
their tactical possibilities are fewer. It's a different game, but
whether it's better is another thing.

My Pegniar Chess is today updated as the previous setup was awkward while
it made the Pegniars too dominant.
