Complete misreading of my comment, Fergus, as anyone can see. You must be operating from some a priori preconception. Objectively evaluating Grand Cavalier, as with any CV, of 500 I have commented on, those are the salient points to be made, chiefly its clear and distinct differentiation from 80-year-old Cavalry. I recommend Cavalier, the better of the two, and can easily imagine good play of related Grand Cavalier too. I enjoyed the GC score of Cavalier, one of 6 or 8 individuals having tested it so far. I may have rated Cavalier, at least commenting within the game score. Who wants or has to take the time even to go over there and look. Simply realisitically, do not expect much play of it. By all means, promote the Track Two candidate Grand Cavalier. Good work at improvement of Cavalier 8x8. It is nevertheless disingenuous to use the cliched, ''have you played it?,'' there has become wide consensus, perhaps during your absence.
