Rare 63 squares, the same one. This clarifies Rules and Strategy of that last one 7x9 Shou Dou Qi. Some ''modern capitalist games have rules which allow an easy drawing strategy. It means that the authors made a mistake or that the games were not meant to be played by truly intelligent people.'' The critique here, in what Panther! maintains, is that Shou Dou Qi is indeed a Draw best play ''but much more complicated than claimed by Mallet and Bodlaender.''
