    One without shade = white
    8 x 8 = 64

    Chess anyone?

    So, begin with a knight's move? But where?

    At the last = perhaps end of pig-pen, end of book, who knows.

    Any thoughts?
    Chess hmmmm well what a game popular with the "shepherds" they used black and white stones the game had 24 points it was call Men's Morris . "According to R. C. Bell, the earliest known board for the game includes diagonal lines and was "cut into the roofing slabs of the temple at Kurna in Egypt" c. 1400 BCE"

    "to the ancient Celts, the Morris Square was sacred: at the center lay the holy Mill or Cauldron, a symbol of regeneration; and emanating out from it, the four cardinal directions, the four elements and the four winds."[

    Used to play it with my dad when I was a kid - great game - forgotten the rules though I still have the board.

    Hi All

    Is it unusual that craze spider started this thread on May 30 2008
    and called it a parting gift?
    Note that May 31 to this point is the last posted clue from Priory,
    although craze spider continued to post.

    thanks

    jjack

    Perhaps Craze Spider has submitted the correct solution and just threw us a few hints to while away the 28 day verifiication period?????

    "A parting gift" from Craze Spider

    Parting - Leaving?
    or Dividing?

    His recent thread suggests the latter......

    Love the Morris angle, and chess. Anybody worked on the puzzle using a freemasonry tracing board.

    If not, I have been offered free lessons from wee Bobby (nothing that betrays his oaths of secrecy of course) - a few pointers from you guys would be great. I will share all or PM as desired by the requestor.

    Bobby usually tells me when I am on the right track - that apparently doesnt contravene any oaths. His body language lets me know when I am on to a secret but he wont elaborate until I get there myself.

    As for where to start...how about where nothing is recorded - fourth page of the cypher.

    Eight to the hand and legs the same

    Try a Eight Spoked Wheel like the one at on the ground in Rome.
