i rated low because of the inaccuracy of the article, the addition of a liberal interpretaion in the paper could confuse someone or inspire them to lazily never learn the game-read the chessmen of mars appendix-take it as 100% literal and then play-no jumping thoat-no thoats moving diagonally before orthogonally-odwars jump like fliers- warriors dont move diagonally-ignore game data from the book's innards when teaching the rules-burrough's intended the appendix to be the only authority on gameplay adding or subtracting nothing-kaor from bantoom homies!
