More copyediting suggestions:

1. "Tipped stacks separate" is kind of hard to parse-- "stacks" looks
   like a verb and "separate" looks like an adjective or adverb!
   How about "A tipped stack separates"?
2. "facing" should probably be "pointing".
3. "surfaces upright, in place, or at any spot" sounds like a list of
   three options.  I'd delete the second comma or both.

The new clause "On a Hop or Dig, pieces *may* be placed *between* others"
seems to clarify some previous questions, but in a different way than
I expected.  To confirm, does this now mean that:

1. You can't Hop or Dig past the *end* of the line (only between or
   atop other pieces)?
2. Tipping a stack of two in the direction of the third piece always
   creates a new stack of two (because Tip is not Hop or Dig, so the
   top Tipped piece can't go between or past the end)?
