Joyce liked to joots (jump out of the system) recreationally too, mixing vastly different games into one supergame  which might be called Dominissimo [Latin "Lord of lords, domino of dominoes"]. By placing digits bricklike in square or triangular or hexagonal patterns an ever growing and changing tableau of interlocking pip sequences, with the pips readable in different number combinations by the two (or more} players, is generated. It can adapted to play with cards, dice, on a blackboard, or slips of paper.
Say, for example, North plays 11 on the tableau,
12
0789
forming an abmas {10, 9, 8, 7}, and a wonx {1, 1}:
1 12 2b hj
10789 4bdfhj
The tableau arrangement can be designated as above with the uppermost rank (from North's pov] as b and the leftmost file as 2 [2b is much better, than not 2b, to answer Hamlet's question. It allows for naming all adjacent positions. Cartesian positions can be designated by even numbers followed by an even letter, and intermediate triangular and hexagonal positions by odd numbers and odd letters.] Then East could move the (1, 1) knightwise, (symbolized by S) changing the tableau to a noir proil {17, 10, 9, 8}. Since the leftmost column was removed the designation changes, 2b shifting back from NW to N of the 0.
