Incredibly ancient quasidemonic ''thing'' that needs a host in order to manifest and feeds off of their negative emotions like anger and hatred? I can't be the only person who read its lines with MikePatton's voice in my head.

* Alternatively, they actually did play up until that point, realized they had reached a setup where the game could go either way, and stopped at that point, because neither really wanted to win, just to die as friends.

* Alternatively, the Devices '''are''' Trolls - that is, alive in the same way trolls are alive. There are non-sentient troll-animals, like a kind of shapeless troll horse or troll ducks (which sink a lot). Devices could be the basic (or final) stage of 'evolution' of silicon-based life on Discworld - doing only one thing.

* Technically there already is a God of Justice on the Disc, although he was last seen beating another god over the head with his flail during Djelibeybi's sojourn in a pocket dimension from ''Pyramids''.

It's a bit suspicious that [[spoiler: Diamond and B'hrian would die simultaneously in mid-game, with the former's hand actually up in the air holding a piece]]. Nor is it plausible that [[spoiler: Diamond, if he was still hardy enough to play, couldn't have tried digging his way out of the cave. (Even ''normal'' trolls scratch can scratch graffiti into stone with their fingertips, remember?)]] Rather, the mortally-wounded [[spoiler: Diamond]] lived ''just'' long enough to ask his counterpart to set the tableau up in that way, as a final lesson to whomever received [[spoiler: the Cube's message]] and came looking for them. [[spoiler: B'hrian Bloodaxe respected his adversary-turned-friend's last request,]] and arranged things accordingly, making sure the pieces were set up so neither side had an advantage.

It's a bit suspicious that [[spoiler: Diamond and B'hrian would die simultaneously in mid-game, with the former's hand actually up in the air holding a piece]]. Rather, the pair agreed to arrange themselves that way as a lesson for whomever followed the message [[spoiler: inside the Cube]], and found them like that. They worked out the positions of the pieces to make sure it'd be clear that neither had the advantage.
