No.830 by Erich Bartel – A festival of white promotions! (JV)


Camelrider(CR): (1,3) Rider. (Moves like a Nightrider but on Camel’s lines only.)

Camel(CA): (1,3) Leaper. 

Nightrider(N): (1,2) Rider. Operates along straight lines with squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.

Zebra(Z): (2,3) Leaper.

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.

Alphabetical Chess: The squares are considered in the order a1, a2…a8, b1…b8, c1 and so on to h8. At each turn, only the unit standing on the square which comes earliest in this order may move. However check and mate are normal.

Madrasi: Units, other than Kings, are paralysed when they attack each other. Paralysed units cannot move, capture or give check, their only power being that of causing paralysis.
Madrasi RI (rex inclusive): the rule applies to Kings as well, so the two Kings may stand next to each other.
