Meirav. Pieces are buried before they are captured, buried pieces may capture other buried pieces. (8x8x2, Cells: 128) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I'm not entirely clear on how the bottom-board mechanics work, specifically on two points:
(a) Does moving onto a square where an opponent has your piece buried capture your own piece or the opponent's?, and in the former case what would be the advantage of making such a move in the first place?
(b)When a piece on the bottom board moves, must it capture another buried piece or does it capture a piece on the top board and thereby resurface (or may it do either)?

Overall, this seems like an interesting concept and I might try it if these points could be clarified. Thanks in advance :)
