This is like an initiate's version of shogi ideas. The Drop, as opposed to The Move, is an interesting option--the concept is a 'how' approach to a solution versus and 'if' attitude. 'I wonder how I can win from here' --as opposed to --'I wonder if I can win from here'. It is a creative solution to use with plateaued players, perhaps. Or it can just stir things up a bit!
