    Oh my gosh... Bobby Fischer said about Capablanca Chess, that was 'scary'.

    So this variant seems very complex, I can't with classic chess

    So I'll be lost with this... really scary

    look at minute 57:00 to 59:36 about chess variants

    Well regular chess already has merged pieces: The queen, rook and bishop merged so maybe that is how they thought about their version.

    Totally impractical, Chess variants has to be easy, no more pieces, no more squares. Randomfischer is playable, is Chess. But when you think an exotic variant the result is a different game.

    Even the chess960, just few people like and play that game

    Best variants are those that We can play with the stuff we already have at home, so, same board, same chessmen
