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.
