Yep.  Guage your rule to your group.

Now, to be fair, "prime number of pieces" isn't a terribly hard rule. But it's not ideal with newbies, particularly ones who aren't yet up to thinking about counting rules. Certainly, you'd want to run "bn iff exactly 3 pieces" before even thinking in that direction.
