Nonant has already been a casual Chess term in the sense that a covered 3x3 (=9) is Checkmate on any rectangle barring intercession (capture or block). These apply to CVs with wild pieces as well as OrthoChess. (1) King is checked? Does he have a nonant left? If not, game and checkmate. (2) All the surrounding 8 radial adjacencies covered? Yes, but King is not in check, and the game just goes on as usual, since he has his seated nonant left, down to one square, still that solitary leg to stand on. But for so long? // __________________ [[Joyce: would you or Howe erase the hidden-from-public last line of Baseball Chess here? It goes roughly altered as: ''SCript Langu=JavaScript,src../lib etc.scrpT>''. Now Baseball is fine except that very last line, which erases the member-editing paragraph under Notes.]]
