Black Nbd7 Does Not Roar at Fredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear

This isn't anything like a real lion. Perhaps "warthog" would be a better name, since warthogs live in holes and avoid predators...such as lions.

Fredthebear collections usually include material related to, a variation of, the main focus of the collection...especially if it's a miniature. A few Nc6 and Na6 games are included for comparison purposes.
