13.February.2011 the 44th day generates cv#44, Cyclohex. Take the author's word that root-7 is the algebraic distance Sennight reaches right beyond Duchess. Mutually exclusive are Rook, Unicorn of 3 bindings, Sennight. Rook should allow 23 not 22 only to avoid null move. There are 19 pieces per side, leaving 21 spaces empty in array position between each army. Pieces move both ways, Pawns one way only. Grandduke, one-stepping Duchess, is King. Three player always lends itself to diplomacy if it works. Because of the narrow board, there is no interest to split up the Rooks as in AltOrth Hex. Unicorn only goes up to 4 steps, because the narrowness prevents a fifth step.
