The definition of OffDiagonal - Michael - 02-24-2021
The definition of the OffDiagonal directions is "All directions between two cells sharing a vertex but not an edge". In the attached image, doesn't the square with the pawn on it share a vertex, but not an edge, with each of those other dark squares? RE: The definition of OffDiagonal - Eric Piette - 02-24-2021
Hi, Not sure which ones you are talking about, what is "each of those other dark squares"? Can you draw on that pic? Regards, Eric RE: The definition of OffDiagonal - Michael - 02-24-2021
The ones diagonal to the one with the pawn. RE: The definition of OffDiagonal - Eric Piette - 02-24-2021
That is just "Diagonal". OffDiagonal is all the ones which are not diagonals. def of diagonal is : "All directions between two sites in line through a vertex" I will update the LGLG to be clear on OffDiagonal excluded Diagonal even if the name is telling that.

So the OffDiagonal directions are "all directions between two cells sharing a vertex but not an edge" minus "all directions between two sites in line through a vertex"? RE: The definition of OffDiagonal - Eric Piette - 02-24-2021
Hi, Yes, all the ones following that definition which are not diagonal. Regards, Eric RE: The definition of OffDiagonal - QuaGamer - 01-16-2022
My understanding of this is that a cell in a square layout is actually a cube with 8 vertices and 12 edges. For game boards that use layers, OffDiagonal neighbors are the eight cells which are UNW, UNE, USW, USE, DNW, DNE, DSW, and DSE. |
