No.87 – #2 by Dieter Müller, Franz Pachl & Sven Trommler – Non-standard realization of Dombrovskis theme with main actors: Equihoppers. (JV)
Grasshopper: 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.
Equihopper: Hops on any straight line (joining square midpoints) to an equal distance beyond a hurdle. Interference and pinning effects are possible on the line.
