    Popeye doesn’t accept Kangaroo(KA) for HurdleColourChanging. Gives an error message: HurdleColourChanging only allowed with certain hoppers. Same it doesn’t work for Kangaroo Lion (or Rabbit).
    Works for Chinese pieces (LEO,PAO,VAO,NAO), for Lion/Bishop-Lion/Rook-Lion, for Nightrider Hopper & Nightrider Lion. I don’t see any list of allowed pieces for HurdleColourChanging property in Popeye’s manual.

    Dear all,
    a new section B is included in the tourney – there other type fairy pieces are also allowed (white and black, but not neutral and half-neutral).

    The Award of both sections will be published till 30.04.2016 on

    P.S. Till now 4 entries are received for Section A.
