    I can answer the 'middle-finger' question. You move your piece with thumb and pointy finger ... at all times, accessible while lingering over the board. The next in line is the middle finger - he's 'free' to use.

    Horsey moves so funky because Calvary is used to flank the enemy on the battlefield. So the L pattern represents a flank pattern.
