Xiangqi and hexagons, a popular theme, not very popular, just popular as things go. Now is 48/135 higher piece density than standard Xiangqi? Xiangqi is 32/90. ''...(I)ncreased in number by 50%,'' the text says, but how about percentagewise to spaces? Exact 0.3555... See charts, and rule 50 which appears to be about the same preoccupation. Neatham has another very interesting CV using pentagons -- arguably pentagons, if anyone remembers that aspect of that discussion.
