But collision movement, and bounce-movement, were designed to be wholly intuitive, coinciding with physical laws (cannon-jumps might be more difficult however). When a billiard ball 'collides' orthogonally with another ball, it will continue in one of two diagonal directions (or come to a halt). It also collides against the margin and then continues in another direction. Likewise 'bouncing' occurs when the piece bounces off in the alignment direction (against another piece), like in a pinball game. Of course, it will take time to understand these pieces. Perhaps they will never become popular. But, regardless, it's fun to try something new. At least it's interesting to investigate their properties. Mats
