Trey captures and moves differently, a divergent chess piece like OrthoChess Pawn or pieces in Divergent Chess. Moving, Trey is restricted Queen up to three spaces. Captured by leaping if necessary, Trey's victim must be three away diagonally or orthogonally. Read Deuce in Lavieri's write-up for full easy comprehension and grasp of the parallels among Trey, Deuce, and Ace. Roberto Lavieri's recent emails to me include(some order rearranged): ''There is a new redistribution of incomes, old economic Pyramid is changing its shape, turning into a Cylinder every day less high. Rich people and economic sectors are in war, a real War against Chavez. They are trying as they can to stop the project. (I'm not a great Chavez fan.)'' Also ''New environmental laws are very strong, democracy more and more participative at municipal and local for now. Ecology is strongly protected: social aspects CAN'T be apologies for damages to environment. First is the guarantee for existence itself and second the way of existing...without ecology there is not economy.'' So Lavieri, absorbed in revolutionary changes in native Venezuela and South America generally, is doing fine, just not so interested in Chess right now.

wow this game is stunning. it's hard to find words to describe properley,
but, it really is unbelievable, a work of art.
apart from the 'displacer', all the pieces move fairly simply. But the
gameplay is far from simple, it is extremely complex, rich in depth. Beautiful game.
Roberto and i are playing 2 games on game courier for anyone interested in
checking it out. It would a major disappointment if this game does not make
it's way to zillions.
