I'm glad folks are reading, and having this discussion!
Sorry I've been too focused on other things to particiapte much myself.
Please let me know if there's anything I should clarify.

On that note, after re-reading David Paulowich's comment and my response
dated 12-28-2008, let me clarify one detail:  Though Scientists can be
thought of as hook movers, David's penny definition has the same potential
problem with Scientists as it does with Reporters and combination planar
movers because some spaces are in more than one possible plane of
movement.

Again, I'm flattered people are reading.  Maybe someday someone will
actually finish a game! :P
