A very nice game.  Interesting playing field, pieces and rules.

As to the idea of using other shapes to denote cells in non-cubic fields
within a 2D medium, a simpler form might be to have points with colorized
radiating lines noting the various directions.  Like Chinese Chess, pieces
would move from point to point.

Although this might also be confusing as lines would criss-cross one
another without actually intersecting.  But this is where colorization
would come in handy.

But I don't think it is necessary to change the graphics for this
particular game as it is quite understandable in its current form.
