The idea of having the camps in opposite corners is one that keeps recurring. If you turn Raumschach on its side you will see that that too is a corner-based variant, and the Pawns move accordingly. This one must have slipped my mind when I came up with A Cornucopia of 9x9 Corner variants, or I would have credited it. Just in case this variant was a subconscious influence I have now done so. One of them uses FIDE pieces but doubling the numbers of most, including Bishops, avoids the need for an asymmetric array.
