The name of Big chess seems to be taken by an older variant, see: http://www.chessvariants.org/large.dir/big-chess.html

There are probably other chess variants called 'Big Chess'. I remember another one on a big board with many pieces and start positions decided by both players, putting pieces on their half board... Anyway, this variant looks strange to me.

Re: Big Chess name.........

Historically speaking, it was a choice of naming such a variant of chess as either FAT CHESS, BULKY CHESS, LARGE CHESS, GIGANTIC CHESS, HUGE CHESS, OH- MY-GOSH! CHESS or BIG CHESS. Finally, it must have been decided that BIG CHESS was the most suitable, politically correct/diplomatic name.

Well, I was thinking, maybe you should formaly call your variant FICGS big chess, to avoid confusion. with that and other variants. Anyway, my opinion on Big chess is somewhat split.
