I think There must be something we disagree on.  Either the terminology, the
starting position (of the house) or the set of valid moves (in particular of
the HOP type).

I assume the terminology is this: queen=3, drone=2, pawn=1 (pip-count-wise).

The starting position is this:

 - Drone pointing left
 - Pawn standing upright
 - Queen pointing right

(that, or the same mirrored around the pawn, which shouldn't matter)

The two HOP moves are these:

1. Hop the pawn onto the drone
2. Hop the pawn/drone stack onto the queen

As far as I read the rules (from my treehouse tubes) these are valid HOP

Let me know if you think I've gotten any of this wrong.
