    I have to agree with Hoa... phil not pawn!

    stick a bellatulum in there as a pawn instead... they are dispensable

    I do agree with the roth = king; sander = queen though...

    and i was thinking... while we're on a games set of mind... how bout a Monopoly based on Orchids??? huh? huh? imagine you can choose a philippinense to run around the different genera... oh yeah....

    ok
    roths=king
    sander=queen
    and what we do with phrag ? I suggest phrags as spectators. In the place reserved to the celebrities, i can see lady bessea and our special guest : lord kovach....

    I'm good with the spectators and ok with lowii as pawns (are they really that expendable?) How about some NOID Maudiae type instead...

    But I really think stone-i need to be rooks.

    a good cultivar of phrag warscewiczianum is as regal as any paph in my book. (and a whole lot cheaper than paph sanderianum).

    Oh, it looks like we get pretty far on this thread while I was away for the day ...

    One of the reasons that I think stonei should be the queen for our chess set is the good things and its history that I have been reading about and related species and cultivars. For example, at the turn of the century, one of the most desired and sought-after paph is a cultivar of stonei called Paph. stonei var. platytaenium. This variety was collected only once and only one plant! It caused such a sensation that Sander sent his collector to Borneo to find more of this plant, resulting in the discovery of Paph. sanderianum! This variety has thicker petals. This plant was lost to cultivation ages ago but one of its hybrids, Paph. Morganiae 'Burfordiense' manages to survive more than 120 years in cultivation to this day! If you look at typical stonei flowers from many different cultivars, you would see that many stonei cultivars have their petal spread quite similar like roth with very little curving and twisting, albeit with different color and decoration features. So I thought stonei would make a good queen, a frosty queen bearing Nenya, Ring of Adamant for the roth king. But I would take sander as the queen as well. But that would be a dark queen, like a Dark Galadriel who wore the One Ring bending on taking over Middle-Earth! Hehehehee...

    I am not against phil as pawn, but when looking at lowii flowers, especially the extending petals, they look just like those winged WWII airplanes ready for kamikaze missions! So I think they should be pawns then!!! And no bellatulum as pawn please! They are not that dispensable! Hehheeeheee ...

    And spectators, Yes, lady bessae and lord kovach! Sounds great!!!
    Or we might as well go for a separate Phrag chess set! Hehehheeee ...
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Definitely a separate Phrag set.

    Okay, Hoa - the white queen can be Stonei. The black queen will be sand. That means kolo probably should be the rook. So we still need a knight.

    One of my most favorite phrags - - course I tend to love them to death. I think they'd make a great knight!
