The Shape Tag


"Shape" is a Category here at CVP. As a tag, we use it as a parent for subcategories: is the board different shape, or the cells themselves? Does the board have holes? Is the board convex? ...




The following are listed as both parent and child of the present tag, which is understood to mean that they are closely related instead of one being the child of the other. An editor may delete one of the relations or merge them into a single tag if they are close in meaning.
