Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

I do not like it when people view the Tower as the equivalent of a Rook. It is the equivalent of the Crooked Rook. (You'll see if you connect the cells' centres.) Thank you, Graeme, for including both pieces. In a subvariant, you could include the 'Elephant', the triangular equivalent of a Crooked Bishop. You could replace the Queen with the Elephant.
