No.155 – hs#3 by Semion Shifrin – Interesting thematic play of LEOs & NAOs. (JV)
LEO(LE): Moves as Queen, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.
NAO(NA): Moves as Leo, but on Nightrider-lines instead of Queen-lines.
Nightrider(N): A Rider along a straight line on squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.
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.
