    As presented in John M. Ford's immortal novel: The Final Reflection.

    Does anyone know if the pieces and rules for this game were ever fleshed out so a game of klin zha could actually be played?

    There's also "The Authorized Klin Zha Homepage" which contains that set of rules with attribution to Leonard B. Loyd, Jr., who (whom?) the webmaster was friends with, as well as strategies and tactics, variant rules, some brief discussion with John M. Ford himself, and a number of dead links to software and stuff that apparently doesn't exist anymore.

    There's also an older Android app that I enjoy. It's helpful with tutorials and game variants and play against the computer options.

    Nice. I always thought the Klingon games were really interesting.
