No.337 by Julia Vysotska – Bishop- and Rook-Locust reciprocally close lines for each other! (JV)


Definition:

Nightrider(N): A Rider along a straight line on squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.

Locust (L): moves on Q-lines but only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

Rook-Locust (LR): Moves like Locust, but on Rook-lines only.

Bishop-Locust (LB): Moves like Locust, but on Bishop-lines only.

Sorry, my comment was not clear. I only meant that with e8 shifted to e6, both W2 moves will be switchback.

Not necessarily an improvement))), but I just can’t ignore this possibility, when I see it.

Setplay format is very nice. Can be an improvement if something can be done about the black locusts !
