Robert, Thanks for your comment. Anyone is welcome to try to implement chogo for zillions without the rectangular mass movement option, if that proves difficult. I guess I put it in because it seemed like a logical, natural extension to column or phalanx movement, and it does actually reflect an option used in real troop marches and manoevres. Anyway I knew it could only be of rare occurrence because of the limited number of men. In fact I've yet to make use of it in any of my trial games! - but I like the idea that it is nonetheless available as a rather arcane resource. Regards, dtj
