You asked how the rules worked out. Answer: we're having some trouble
understanding them.

It took me several re-reads to decide that only vertical pieces could
stack, not horizontal ones. (That is: I thought a Tip on a stack would
result in a horizontal stack. Now I believe it results in separate
horizontal pieces.)

I'm still not sure what the targetting rules on Dig and Hop are. Can you
use those moves to place a piece between two existing pieces? Or does the
piece have to wind up under/above another piece?

I believe that a move which changes nothing is no move, and therefore
gives you the opportunity to change the House. Is that right?

Footnote: we may whip out a quick Volity implementation of this...

It's a nice distinction to tell American soldiers (and Iraqis) to die in
Iraq for the sake of democracy (ignoring the question of whether it's
*working*) and then whine that "The Constitution is not a suicide pact."
