I think we should consider this move:
 
20w Ec5w De1n Me3e De2w
 
coz it is doing three things:
 
1) threaten the camel hostage
2) defending c3 trap
3) further activating the camel

Also keep in mind 20b mb3n rc3w mb4e mc4s.  This threatens to take a cat and chessandgo probably can't afford the cat trade.  Yet for him to protect c3 again he has to push our rabbit away from the trap.  In other words, we effectively un-frame our rabbit with that move.  That doesn't mean it is good, just that it is a possibility to be reckoned with.

Unfortunately, I'm on dial-up for a while and it is quite ridiculous trying to get any game windows to load. If someone could post a textual description of the board or a low-quality screenshot, I would be most obliged. Thank you in advance.

Nice one, camelback.  That is the most readable text board I've seen yet.  You have inspired me to try to do one better:
 

+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| r | r | r |   |   | r | r | r | 8
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
|   |   | c | d | c | d | r |   | 7
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
|   |   | x |   |   | x | h |   | 6
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| h |   | E |   |   |   |   | R | 5
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| D |   |   |   |   |   |   |   | 4
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| H | m | r | e | M | x | H |   | 3
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
|   | R | C |   |   | C |   |   | 2
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| R | R | R |   | D | R | R | R | 1
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+

Since we're looking at different textual boards, here's what I use with my bots:
20w 
 +-----------------+
8| r r r . . r r r |
7| . . c d c d r . |
6| . . x . . x h . |
5| h . E . . . . R |
4| D . . . . . . . |
3| H m r e M x H . |
2| . R C . . C . . |
1| R R R . D R R R |
 +-----------------+
   a b c d e f g h

It's just the official long representation but with empty places replaced by .'s. Let's me easily have the bots parse it back in but is a lot easier, especially with mostly empty boards, to see where pieces are exactly.

Thank you, guys. However, you leave me no choice but to outdo you all:
 

+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| r | r | r |   |   | r | r | r | 8
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
|   |   | c | d | c | d | r |   | 7
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
|   |   | x |   |   | x | h |   | 6
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| h |   | E |   |   |   |   | R | 5
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| D |   |   |   |   |   |   |   | 4
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| H | m | r | e | M | x | H |   | 3
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
|   | R | C |   |   | C |   |   | 2
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
| R | R | R |   | D | R | R | R | 1
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+  
  a   b   c   d   e   f   g   h  

 
At least, this is okay without a white background. It's not really any different text-wise.

WOW  Shocked amazing.. You guys just stole the thunder, elaborate and perfect. I think with The_Jeh's board we don't even need animal representation  Wink  
 
I generated the board using a perl script. It was my first perl  script Grin I had to replace the empty spaces with something to prevent forum messing up the board. '.'s are nice idea.
Of course janzert's board is generated from some script. But I can see Fritzlein and Jeh spent lots of time personalizing the board. Hat's off to you  Smiley
 
Well, I'm going way offline "move 20", I shut up  Lips Sealed

All very pretty
 
I feel compelled to point out however, that The_Jeh would probably prefer a correct board!
 
Fritz, you have the Eb5, and Ra2 Cb2 wrong.  The_Jeh, somehow you corrected the elephant, but not the others.

Thank you. I've corrected it. I or someone else can repost the board with the announcement of each new move for our convenience.
