</P>Well, I'll admit that I hadn't gone down far enough to see that you actually gave your own preferences regarding how the game should be played. Using your terms, let me list what I think is the authentic interpretation:</P> <P><B>Chained Panthan</B><BR> <B>Chained Warrior</B><BR> <B>Chained Padwar</B><BR> <B>Jump Thoat</B><BR> <B>Chained Dwar</B><BR> <B>Chained Flier (Odwar)</B><BR> <B>Chained Wild Chief</B><BR> <B>Brave Chained Wild Princess with Chained Wild Escape</B></P> <P>As it turns out, this differs from Jean-Louis Cazaux's interpretation on the matter of the Princess' escape. His interpretation is what you call Free Wild Escape.</P> <P>The interpretation I give here is what I think the most literal and authentic interpretation is, not necessarily what I think would make the best game. That is a matter I haven't given much thought to. This is not an expression of a preference concerning how Jetan should be played but an expression of a conclusion concerning what is the most accurate reading of how Burroughs intended Jetan to be played.</P>
