The whole range of Rose board games is being updated. Details available
from me. Rose notation is the only system to claim that it is suitable for
all such board games based on the prime number '3' ie. regular hexagons
of cells whatever the shape of the cell (dot, spot, intersection, hexagon).
What matters is that White is at South. Notation is orientated with rank1
being at the side, not at a corner as in Glinski's game board, and that
this is applied to a game even iff the starting positions are set out
across a corner as in Glinkski's games.
