Your Big Shot piece is your most valuable as it can always move back and forward, and even swap places with any of your pieces next to it.
With the term Big Shot we refer to an important or influential person. In the USA the term gained popularity in the late 1920s, and the term appeared everywhere, i.e. in April 1930 the Lincoln Star of Nebraska remarked: "Unless the memory play us a trick, Al Capone is the 'big shot' of Chicago gangland.". The phrase has some negative overtones, i.e. yeah the person has a posiion of power/influence, but also a big ego head. Billy Joel cashed in on the term back in the late 70s. It has the second hit single from his 1978 album '52nd Street'. The song was released in early 1979 as a single, and soon became a top 20 hit, peaking at #14. The song is superficially about the protagonist mocking a woman with a severe hangover about her intoxicated escapades around town, making numerous social and verbal faux pas while high on alcohol and drugs. Today this song is frequently played at classic rock radio stations all over the country.
