The Comment You're Replying To

No more forgotten than the game Ramayana are two questions in earlier comments year 2004, those of Amin (seriously wanting ''ten thousand dozens'') and Charles Gilman. Actually Gilman has several, one ''Which is correct as an element of the Develapa move -- Camel 1:3 (2,4) or Giraffe 1:4 (2,5)?'' Gilman's nomenclature now bears misleadling year 2007 origination mostly, but they were really begun in 2003, concurrent with his asking at Ramayana here about potential piece names from Indian religion -- the harbinger of the rest of Man & Beast 01: Constitutional Characters to ''M&B 21: LHEE.'' Then he was only at ''03 From Ungulates Outward.'' The encyclopaedic cataloguing itself needs to be catalogued. It becomes reminiscent of British colonial records still housed in warehouses at India to be archived. One speculates, in first approximatation, there may average 50 new pieces or names or compounds per article, and so 50*21 over a thousand pieces, along that route including at least 15%-25% new inventions, however obscurantist, never undertaken to be named or thought of before. Thanks Charles. The FAQs of Luiz Carlos Campos clarify rules of Ramayana. For follow-up, how do the Soma Cube-like partial board squares integrate with the rest of the Ramayana system? (Hint: think leaping) A FAQ is ''Does the Rakshasa ever move by itself?'' Answer: ''No. Neutral pieces don't have moves of their own.''
