Game illustrations in this volume were created using the ZunTzu software, as developed by Jérôme Bonnet, employing the improved Game Box module created by Bill Barrett using the wonderful artwork of John Cooper. The author is profoundly grateful to Jérôme Bonnet, Bill Barrett, and John Cooper for their work in creating and supplying the software that allowed me to generate my illustrations. I also acknowledge Joe Beard, Ed Menzel, and Omar DeWitt for reading earlier drafts of the manuscript. The improvements were theirs; the remaining errors are mine. I must finally express my gratitude to fellow gamers, some of whom preferred to remain anonymous, who also commented on the text of this work, supplied sample games and moves, and in many other ways helped make this a better book.
