Movement

General Piece Movement
There are two axes of movement on the board; flats and lines. The lines further divide into three mutually exclusive line axes.

Pieces move along lines, across flats or some combination of these.

A piece moving across a flat axis travels through each space along the route.

A piece moving along a line axis does not go through the spaces whose edges make the line. Therefore, pieces in these spaces will not interrupt travel.

Travel may continue until the piece reaches its movement limit, or encounters another piece.
