Any position on a game's board that may be occupied by that game's pieces.

Such occupation may be:

  • singular and complete - a cell holds a single complete piece.
  • singular and partial - a cell holds one part of a multi-celled piece.
  • multiple - a cell holds many pieces, each one being complete or partial.

A cell may be multi-dimensional and can take a variety of shapes.

For example:

  • Square, as in FIDE Chess;
  • Hexagonal, as in Glinski's variant;
  • a Point (zero dimensions), as in XiangQi
