No.678 by Anatoly Stepochkin – Super AUW in Tanagra form! (JV)

Definitions:

Reflecting Bishop: Moves like a normal chess Bishop, but it has the additionally power of reflecting off the side of the board at a 90 degree angle. It may not move to the square on which it starts its move.

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.

KoKo: A move is possible only if the piece moved arrives on a square next to another unit.
