No.440 by Gani Ganapathi – The black Wazirs conduct the white Pawns! (JV)
Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the King’s square.
Wazir: (0,1) Leaper, e.g., a1 to a2; a1 to b1.
Rook-Locust(LR): (0,1) Locust. Operates along Rook lines.
Locust(L): (0,1)+(1,1) Locust. Moves along Queen lines only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.
