Yes, I did mean squares of distances. The base-36 was simply a way to represent every distance as a single character. Regarding Jared McComb's comments, the cells in this game ARE rhombic dodecahedrons, I just thought that that was too much information to include in my own comment, and the orthogonals are indeed at right angles to the boundaries they pass through. The view presented uses one of the square cross-sections, but an alternative view of the same game would be a pyramid with a single cell with progressively larger triangles of cells viewed in hex cross-section below.
