Gilman Man & Beasts have no triangles yet either,

Good. So, rook and unicorn from my 64 triangles was invented before me.
Interesting interpretation of 'sideways' (compare to my Triangular xiang-qi).
Hey, there are already quite many triangular variants! Maybe, there should be some shortcut in making triangular GC presets (other than hexagonal board, where one of colors is not used)?

Ah .. right .. my mistake. I drew the Board with two extra rows in the middle!

Er, I think it's now up to the editors to upload the piece set and the two boards. I can start from there.

Abdul-Rahman, I have uploaded the now 2 empty boards to the graphics directory for this page.
Board1
Board2
The piece icons are also there.

The three Gyro's on a given side cover 35 trigs, the missing 11 trigs are those covered by the opponent's central Gyro.

Superificial resemblance to excellent Weave & Dungeon

I like it! The pieces all make good use of the board and are, I must say, logical enough.

I would like to make a preset for it. If you would upload an empty picture of the board and icons for the pieces, I am sure one of the editors will upload to the site, and I can go from there.

(One little suggestion : If the Trigs were coloured according to the Gyro's move, it would make it easier to visualize.)

PS. I did try to draw all the zones for the Gyros. Apparently, there are 16 Trigs Gyros can never reach. Was this intentional ?
