With the addition of the 'pentagonal' boards, this article now covers five of the most familiar of the nineteen uniform and dual-uniform tilings. Several of the others -- Floret pentagonal comes to mind -- can be addressed using the AVERSE system, so coverage is likely much better than that.

I'd like to suggest the quadrilateral tilings on this list for further study. Quadrilateral tilings tend to suggest obvious interpretations of FIDE pieces, but when the quadrilaterals are not rectangles, those pieces may behave oddly. On the deltoidal trihexagonal tiling, the obvious Rook travels in a twelve-step circle.
