MAB 12
Well the introduction to each index page contyains the sentence 'Then comes the geometry, with a link to the Man and Beast page...' The reason for doing it this way is because some pieces are, for example, defined in MAB 05 as cubic pieces and MAB 14 for one or more hex geometries, and so haev a link for each geometry.
	The Lobster isn't the kind of piece that I would have invented, so it takes quite some defining. I plan to update this page to mention switching cycles, and could clarify the Lobster move, especially  distinguishing between 2d and 3d.
