Joyce's preferred DWAF7 is allowed two 90- or 45-degree changes of direction and has maximum reach of 14, such as on 10x16 a1-o13 by a1-c3-e5-g7-i7-k9-m11-o13. Since the components can all be diagonal, a1-o15 is another move from corner to corner but one (p16 is the corner). With W and Ferz also part of the package, all 160 square are reachable (Joyce favours the size), including the interior. DWAF7 is kind of the end-point in Joyce Daisy development so far.
