  1. Great video! (From Italy) πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰

  2. Is hia shatar mentioned in this book?? And I also have interest in Chu-shogi, tenjiku shogi, makadaidai-shogi, tai-shogi,

  3. One particular chess set that I am looking for has a Judaic theme, and unfortunately, the links in the video link are not any good & nor are the phone numbers listed for the store in Denver. I was hoping you may know where I can find this particular set being displayed in the video link… https://youtu.be/ValSujhg_qc

  4. I know these games are very modern but do you think you might do a video on twixt and another on tak.

  5. Incredible. This is what I've been waiting for so long… and its beyond my expectations. I can only imagine how much work went into this. Phenomenal. Count me in! and respect to McFarland… when you see that colophon you can expect top quality. and great indexes. Thanks so much to the authors. Ill get right onto it.
