No.661 by Peter Harris – An interesting combination of the three pieces, Imitator and Transmuted Kings in two phases! (JV)

Definitions:

Transmuted Kings: When they are threatened, the Kings move only like the threatening unit(s).

Imitator(I): Every time a piece moves an Imitator (or a set of Imitators) moves simultaneously in an identical manner. An Imitatorcannot move of itself. If an Imitator cannot imitate the move of a piece, the move is illegal. An Imitator may only pass through or enter an unoccupied square and cannot move off the board. Castling is imitated by decomposing into a King move followed by a Rook move.

Nightrider(N): (1,2) Rider. Operates along straight lines with squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.
