Three-handed Wellisch's is among several cvs from year 1912, 100 years, along with Dawson's Grasshopper piece-type. Wellisch's grandson says in other comment here, though the acorn fell from the tree, he is aware of this CV, sustained by Dr. Friedlander's applet, still being played in India. (1) What other CVs of modern origin also not only play but may originate from India the twentieth century? (2) Also, to get self-explanatory study of Charles Gilman's ''Wellisch orientation'' -- versus that of Glinsky and that of McCooey -- just move pieces against this computer. Three interpretations of how best to divide and define hexagonal basic piece-types: Glinsky (1936), McCooey (1978-79), Wellisch (1912).
