Initial Placement

I think you might have an error on your initial placement:

The cyan pieces are place, in asscending pip order, at B4, D2 & C2 in a diagonal line.

Shouldn't that be B4, D2 & C3? Otherwise it's not in a line and not at all symetrical. Donsheldon 12:13, 16 September 2007 (EDT)

The pieces are now in a straight line, but I didn't want them to be symetrical. (You can't do it with three.)

I drew an ascii diagram for you. Is that the way you mean it?

You should clarify jumping. Can you jump diagonally? Does there have to be anything in your way or just something in the first space, or do you need to have men in all the spaces in between? It's very unclear. I can't even tell if jumping is a quality that doesn't do anything on it's own and only "counts" when combined with other pieces. Also, if might be a good idea to explicitly state that non-orange pieces can't jump, just to have your bases covered.

Jumping has been clarified.

I think that you have some restrictions on stacking in mind that are not made clear in these rules.

You talk about "the largest piece," what if there are two pieces of the same size? Is that even allowed? How do I know if they're nested or stacked?

I'm very confused about how this mechanics is supposed to work. There's a lot of good that could be here, but I'm just not sure what you mean.

Good catch. I didn't even think about that. It's fixed now.

Is it just me, or is your winning condition actually your losing condition?

You're right. It's been re-worded.

(I've got more questions too, but I'll wait a bit for that.)

Thanks for all you feedback! - Bess

Thanks to who ever added the board setup diagram!
