The site has moved to a new server, and there are now some issues to fix. For example, it looks like you can't post comments. I will look into that in the morning.

I love the idea of buying pieces for each game, and wish someone would
implement this on a server. (Wouldn't that be a terrific attraction to
add to the growing gamesmagazine-online website, for instance!) That's
the only idea for a CV I've ever heard that would actually merit being
forecast as 'the future of Chess.' 

The piece values and the players' budgets for hiring their armies would
have to depend on the size and shape of the board, right? And probably on
the relative strength of the players -- one thing that strikes me as
especially appealing about this concept being its usefulness for
handicapping.
