From decade ago year 1999 the entry says , ''anything worth doing is worth overdoing.'' Here are at least 75 piece-types well-defined in one game. Centaur is Betza triple (N,F,W). Zig is (W,D + more). Zag is (F,A + more). Dayrider is (A,D + more). Dervish is (D,A + more). Lioness is precisely (A,D,F,W,N) using all the Betza atoms. Goat is (D,F latter weakened not to capture). Marquis is (W,N). Missionary is (W,F,A latter weakened to Bishop-like). Like but unlike Zig, Parrot is (W,D + more). Priest is (F,N). Like but unlike Zag, Raven is (F,A + more). Sorcerer, like Missionary above, is (W,F,A weakened the same and then enhanced unlike Missionary). Squirrel is (D,N,A) as well-used. To name a few thus is to anticipate many dozen copycats in the following Aughts.
