All the Excellent '9x9's fall 2007 were apparently never grouped as one, so as convenience we put them here for follow-up use with Cetina's indulgence. Coherent, Omega, Sissa, Weave & Dungeon, Hanga Roa, Melee, Three Fat Brothers, Modern, Altair, Kristensen's all 9x9. Coherent is as good as any for the pinnacle because of actual lengthy, interesting game scores with annotations and novel multi-path piece Sissa. What factors cause disproportionate excellence among the chosen 81-square size?
