Obelisque, odalisque, what's one word or another since chess is nonverbal, like tic'tac'toe or the deadly Rock,fire,scissors,paper martial art routine; or CV art or CaVe art, withal evocative caveats. Now it is not easy to find 16x4 sizes, but this makes two of them, in assembling material to plumb the depths of Ramayana Bhuddha's board. Now Odalisque is October 2002 and Ramayana is November 2002 in serendipity. Betza's 2x2x16 Race Chess is about the same thing January 2003.
