When representing a 4D game in two dimensions, which is what we're limited to on a computer screen, it makes sense to pair together a higher-dimensional label with a lower-dimensional one. This is especially so with something like Game Courier, which gives you only files and ranks to work with. This can lead to a coordinate like Dc23, which I hovered over randomly, which transposes the second and third dimensions. Bearing that in mind, it looks like this game has 5 ranks, 5 files, 5 3D rows or levels, and 5 4D columns or realms.
