Huh.  I like this idea -- it avoids the "insane number of guessing
stones; must sit for ten minutes trying to formulate a guess" problem
that occasionally crops up in Zendo.  Given the distinction between 1
and 2 guessing stones, I wonder if "half" might not be better/more fun
while doing a good number on the same problem.

Will see what I can do, depending on when my next opportunity to play.
