This makes excellent sense.  I'll have to review how each piece moves, but I
like the idea of saying (for example) : {loS qam 'evDaq leng pavwI' chan wej

I've got the grammar right.)
You should look at the cards for Klingon Monopoly. It's set a
precedent for how to talk about movements on game boards. In
particular, {yer} is used for game square, though the game squares are
literally territories in that game, so maybe that doesn't generalise.

I'd be inclined to use a verb for moving one step with {N-logh}, and
split that sentence into two:
{chan wej botlhDaq puvwI' tu'lu'. 'evDaq loSlogh leng.}

(Bare in mind that I know nothing about the game mechanics. I'm
assuming that {chan wej botlh} makes sense as a location and that
{puvwI'} is a game piece.)

The basic rules may be found here:

Unfortunately, the tlhIngan Hol translation, done some time ago by Dlora, seems to be missing. Ergo, I don't know how to call each piece by it's "proper" name. A;though I suspect the Vanguards, being the lest powerful pieces, would be {beqmey} }}:-)
