4096 Cells. MegaChess ''uses pieces which are themselves games of chess.'' Offhand, you're frequently not moving pieces around but, in effect, games around; and that's exactly what the middle decade of CVPage came to be about. A turn in MegaChess is a move on any, stress any, eight of the Chessboards. This is incomplete analysis, instead just to provide Joyce's thread of beyond Huge CVs known material. Previously, there have been definitions for Large as only 72-84 squares, ''Very Large'' up to 100, Extremely Large still about 110-144, and other categories upwards. The ranges defined, that can easily be relocated, stopped with 256 squares or cells.
