My opponent and I agreed to ignore rule #1 and #2 and not play out the rest of the rounds. I won 2/2 of the rounds played, thus the resolution is affirmed.

If anybody else would like to 'debate' me on this, send me a challenge. I'll be happy to accept.

Nope. I've played this game more times than I care to remember. It's certainly 7x6.

You're right. I guess mentally I just made it a square.

Is it alright if I try just for fun?

Make sure to post 3 lines of text so the board doesn't get messed up.
