I'm not sure if you are aware of the SDG Archives
(http://superdupergames.org/main.html?page=listoldgames).  It will allow
you to step through each game and see what works and what doesn't
(MChess: 238 games since 14 Oct 2005, Pikemen: 118 games since 16 Sep
2005).  If you discover anything of general usefulness, feel free to
post on the wiki (http://wiki.superdupergames.org).
