DSCN3274-cropNo.307 by Mario Parrinello – A very interesting problem with a play of Marine Knights only! At the moment when I’m waiting for the 2nd part of the article about Marine pieces to publish, when I’m going to announce Marine TT, and when I plan to try Marine Knight for my own composing –  it’s so great to get these Marine Knights with dedication to the 1st Birthday of Julia’s Fairies! (JV)


Marine Knight (MS): Moves as Knight provided destination is vacant, captures an enemy on (1,2) by a leap to (2,4) – which again must be vacant. (Note: in some sources this piece is named Squid (SQ), in WinChloe program – Cavalier marin (CM). In Popeye this figure is not yet programmed).

    ‘Skylla’ …. this seems a more interesting Marine piece.
    (Moves like Mao, and captures the adverse man on the orthogonal square !).

    • Yes, Marine Knight seems unwieldy to be the main the only fairy piece in a problem often, but it can be very important part of a mechanism including other fairy pieces.
