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've just been having a think about this and it occurs to me that you've come up with a huge family of new pieces that can move n or fewer moves as one linepiece and n or more as another. Another family can move n or fewer as one and n+1 or more as the other. In both cases I have already given those with n=1 distinctive names. I am adding ones with n>1 by use of suitable prefixes.
