Creative for its time, still the over-powerful pieces make not so good a CV to play. These Pawns from 1920's move like jumping Knight also some cases, not Xiangqi's non-jumping and blockable. In variations of Frank Maus there are distinctions as to forwardness, or not, and capturing or not. However, Maus' Knight-Pawns in Knight mode cannot be blocked like Duniho's Cavalier in Cavalier (8x8) and Grand Cavalier(10x10). Here is found at the end in postcript Duniho's comparison and contrast of origin and dynamics of the pair with the nearly century-older Cavalry(8x8).
