Then after 8.Gh8 comes the white promotion in …Knight-hopper. Black Grasshopper and white King-hopper jump each over along the long diagonal till b2 and a1. Black King-hopper can move to c2 square. Then white King-hopper and black Grasshopper jump each over up along the long diagonal till f6 for black Grasshopper (14th move), allowing white Knight-hopper to jump over in e4. Then, from 15th move to 19th move, black Grasshopper returns to f6 by another way, losing a tempo so to inverse the side to play in the position white: King-hopper e5, Knight-hopper e4/ black : Grasshopper f6. The Knight-hopper can return in g8. Then another time, black Grasshopper and white King-hopper jump each over along the long diagonal till b2 and a1. Black King-hopper returns to a2 and black Grasshopper to f6 after some jumps. It allows 24.SGe4 and 25.KGc3 mate with an anti-battery King-hopper/Knight-hopper. (Author)
