No.320 by Daniel Novomesky – A very nice Aristocrat-Miniature typical for Daniel ! (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.
Hurdle colour changing Grasshopper (hG): As a Grasshopper, but after a move it changes color of the hurdle-piece (except King).
