No.407 by Valerio Agostini – A nice orthogonal-diagonal play! (JV)
Kangaroo (KA): Moves along Queen-lines over 2 another units (hurdles) of either color (which may or may not stand on adjacent squares) to the square immediately beyond the second unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdles are not affected.
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.
Eagle (EA): Moves like a Grasshopper ((0,1)+(1,1)Hopper), but deflects 90° either way on passing over the hurdle. The arrival square is adjacent to the hurdle.
