The irrepressible John Linton, in response to my previous post,

No Rules, Just WRONG!,

writes in an email: Mike Bacon has opened my eyes to the evil that no notation is.  And I was one of the earlier sinners in this regard.

However, I do detect a slight logical contradiction:  As G30 is not, we can all agree, real chess, it's difficult to see why people should bother to notate non-chess games.

Hell, to notate a G30 is a bit like notating G5, is it not?

Well, is it, or is it not?
