Rodwell Game Try - After responder bids a possible 4 card major and opener makes a 2 level suit raise, responder makes an artificial next suit rank query to determine Opener's trump length and strength. 

Note: Eric Rodwell's original treatment incorporates additional features beyond this sequence:

Meaning

1m - 1H;   1m - 1S;
2H - 2S;     2S - 2N;

Bidding 2S/N, the next rank above agreed on major asks opener to make a step response describing trump suit length and overall hand strength

1C - 1H;    1C - 1S;
2H - 2S;    2S - 2N;
2N -     ;    3C -      ;

1C - 1H;    1C - 1S;
