João, I just had a thought -- can a stack have more than six stones in it? The rules don't seem to forbid this, but neither do they describe how such a stack would move. If a stack of 7+ moved like a Queen, I can see some tactical conditions where it might (rarely) make sense to make such a stack. On the other hand, I could easily see limiting stacks to 6 stones.
