Grasshopper(G): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

Kangaroo (KA): Moves along Queen-lines like a Grasshopper, but over 2 hurdles (which may or may not stand on adjacent squares) to the square immediately beyond the second hurdle. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdles are not affected.

Moose (or Elan): Moves like a Grasshopper ((0,1)+(1,1)Hopper), but deflects 45° either way on passing over the hurdle. The arrival square is adjacent to the hurdle.
