Example text

12 shows the entrance of the White Mosquito on turn 31. The White Mosquito enters the game adjacent to White Ant #2 and therefore immediately has the Ant’s superior mobility. Black can choose to keep the pin on White Ant #2 or shift the pin to the White Mosquito. Either way, one or the other of the White bugs will be mobile. But if Black had placed the pin from space C, the White Mosquito could not have entered the game in the space shown. And if it had entered the game in space A, the Black Ant could shift the pin to the Mosquito and both the White Mosquito and White Ant #2 would have been pinned by the one Black Ant!

Again, White has just placed another bug (White Ant #3) into a threatening position. From its initial position White Ant #3 can easily move into space B. But, Black has other plans. The defensive maneuver as shown does create a ring, but it also places a block to protect space B. 3 (page 48) shows the position following the placement of Black Ant #3 on turn 34. Notice how both space A and space B are continuing to be protected by the blocks. Space A is now completely surrounded and space B is protected by Black Spider #2.

But a large portion of the Beetle’s power comes from what we will refer to as The Cover. The Beetle Cover refers to its ability to cover an opposing bug and render it immobile. Not only is an opposing bug covered in this manner unable to move, but for new bug placement purposes, the color of that space is changed to the color of the topmost Beetle. 1 – Immobilize the Queen The Beetle Cover is a particularly dangerous weapon when the bug covered is the opposing Queen. Because she cannot escape, it is now much easier to surround the Queen.
