Buddha's Board. Ramayana(year 2002) is four-wide and unsymmetrical board slopes 90 degrees for visibility of course. Yellow plays left to right. There is no reward for entry to Archipelago except insofar as facilitating checkmate. Evil brilliant bad-Karma Rakshasa, when moved in lieu of a turn, means no take-backs or double-move. On your turn, evil Rakshasa figures against you, and when you move, demon Rakshasa or otherwise, he/she(Rakshasi) inures to your benefit consummating. BUDDHA is the one possible promotee and does not appear in the beginning. Are the compounds inclusive? Or giving the sense of inclusivity in the Ramayana context. FAD, DAN, (FN + Giraffe), (W + Giraffe), WD, FN, NA. Giraffe colour-switches and leaps 1 and 4 to opposite corner of 2 by 5 set of squares. It is worthwhile to think about the partial boards in the Indic Ocean and how they relate to the (transportable) arrival squares above -- apparently at first two disparate phenomena with Separate Realities.
