This is an excellent, highly original concept that provides for a myriad of possibilities. I also like the page layout and piece images... very good all around. I'd certainly like to watch a few games of this in action. Are there any example games that we could play through? Very well done!

Brilliant work. Great idea.

it's in Ann Arbor/Detroit, Michigan. We just started a Yahoo mail list
called SEMI Abstract Gamers. The SEMI is for South East Michigan, and we
occasionally play games that aren't entirely abstract. But we prefer
zero-sum deterministic strategy/tactics board games. I used to privately
call us the Zillions group because we all have that program, but it
didn't catch on since we never use Zillions in our monthly playtest

A computer implementation would be ideal.

I might mold and cast this set in alumilite for the local abstract board
games group. The holes on the tile should go all the way through. 2.5'
long sounds like a good size for a tile. For visual clarity, the pegs
should have a head about .75' across.
