No.439 by Karol Mlynka – Interesting “Rex solus” play! (JV)


Pressburger King (Super Transmuting King): King which definitively takes up the nature of the checking piece (and thus loses his royal status).

Diagram Circe: As Circe, but the captured piece reappears on the diagram position rebirth square.

Bishophopper(BH): As Grasshopper, but moves on Bishop lines only.

RoyalBishophopper(rBH): As Bishophopper, but the piece executes a function of the King on the board.

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.
