Also at the top of 9x9 size, Weave and Dungeon. White Weave is like sine waves seen from above, Black Dungeon. Only the 81 squares may be occupied. ''An implied underpass[which cannot itself be occupied] is the trough of a strand located directly beneath the bridge of a cross-strand'' makes perfect sense. (White)Segments are only two or three long. Of the two motions, sliding and stepping, sliding is continuous either within Dungeon(Black) or along a strand(White). The other motion, a step, is abrupt change of altitude(there are four altitudes, but again exactly the 81 spaces). Capture being by displacement, the connectivity described is enough to differentiate the six piece-types, with some single moves allowed combining sliding and stepping both. Wins are graded hierarchically as Triumph, Ovation, or simple Victory. ''Stalemate and repetition are a loss.'' LCC's 2002 Comment still applies, ''This variant has easily the most interesting geometry I've seen.''
