No.478, 479 by Václav Kotěšovec – Two groups of different hoppers in two wonderful serial problems in Vaclav‘s style!  (JV)


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.

Nightriderhopper(NH): (1,2) Hopper. Moves along (1,2) Rider lines stopping on the next square after the first obstacle of either color. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

VAO(VA): Chinese piece operating along Bishop lines: moves as Bishop, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.
