  1. I think its called Cross Derby because the board is shaped like a cross, and a derby is a horse race, signifying the extra knights.

  2. Interesting variant, with an interesting win. Nicely thought out.

  3. What is the app name and how can you do these arrows and dots😅

  4. I just came across with your video, keep up the good work,
