No.942 by Erich Bartel – A four-corner quadruplet! My gratitude to Erich for the dedication! (JV)

Definitions:

Equihopper(EQ): Moves along any line over another unit of either color to a square situated such that the hurdle stands at the mid-point between the Equihopper’s departure and arrival squares. The English Equihopper cannot pass over an obstruction other than the hurdle when playing along Queen-lines. The non-stop/French Equihopper does not have this restriction. Unless otherwise stated, the non-stop Equihopper is meant.

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.

Sparrow(SW): Moves like a Grasshopper ((0,1)+(1,1)Hopper), but deflects 135° either way on passing over the hurdle. The arrival square is adjacent to the hurdle.

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.
