No.308  by Vito Rallo – Nice mates with specific AG-effects! (JV)


Andernach Grasshopper(AG): A Grasshopper that changes the color of any non-royal hurdle it leaps over.  

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.
