Right, closer reading shows Coherent to be as good as Sissa itself, because of Coherent's interestingly-appropriate Pawns. One way of course to learn not to see Pawns as Pawns is playing Rococo Cannon Pawns, also omnidirectional including one-step Kinglike as Coherent's except for capturing; Rococo Cannon Pawns have the additional two-step leap both modes. There are some other Pawn's going one step only omnidirectionally. ''Knight'' here is the later-named Sissa, that is multi-path, either two-path or four-path according to the arrival square. For the running cross-thread of ''9x9-Excellent CVs,'' so far including Weave & Dungeon, Hanga Roa, Three Fat Brothers, Gabriel Maura's Omega, and Sissa (all of them to be collated as we go from time to time), this surely adds the Sissa-inspiration Coherent. Carlos, I am glad Gabriel Maura is apparently well, having thought I read otherwise somewhere.
