Oh, you are correct. It is quite confusing having two games played on a 10x10 board with pieces called Elephants.

I don't see why I need to change the rules(?). This game has been throroughly revised and also extensively tested with a friend of mine.

The game is finished now, complete, dusted... published...

The Fool is a perfect name for someone wise and of great intellect. For the fool was anything but in ancient and medieval times. You had to jest in such a way as to not lose your head when insulting someone in court. Fools also had more freedom of speech than most anyone else, able to speak on controversial issues in such a way that lesser folk would be punished for... the fool, AKA joker or jester, had to walk a fine line indeed.

The fool could certainly be a facet of Ganesh.

So I don't understand the push from some people to change the name from Fool to Joker.
