Nagh's Design for a Klin-Zha Set
and Some Thoughts on Play

...I have been making up klin-zha pieces for beginners, cardboard and cellotape elongated prototypes. I envisage elongated crystalline tetrahedral pieces with Braille embossing on one [face] as a likely final design--with a curved Flier, and the other pieces of varying heights as desirable features to throw in, creating a K1ingon's kind of triangular magic square...I figured an instructive notation made directly on the pieces would facilitate getting opponents to play against, and these tetrahedral pieces would fit well on the triangular base cell of the klin-zha board. If the pieces were made up in a translucent material, images more or less instructive and symbolic could be included inside them to give both utility and beauty to the set.

Design for tetrahedral klin-zha pieces with moves carved into their sides:

A straight base band indicates that the piece may not change direction in mid-move
A bent base band indicates that the piece may change direction during a move, as long as it does not re-enter any cells already entered during that move.
Pieces with circled numbers are Goal-carriers.
An asterisk indicates that the piece may jump over intervening cells, occupied or not.
Numbers or dots indicate how many cells a piece may traverse on various occasions, counting from its starting point.
