Bobber, increasing its fire power the more moves get played, may be concept not unlike one used lately by John Smith in his series Faster and Faster Chess.

Please explain how it is like that, and why you are calling my game a series. My Faster and Faster pieces do not move X spaces initially, then after completing a move can move up to X+1 spaces. They are more like Pandas. They move 1 step at the start of every move, then continue moving in the same turn in the same direction exactly 2 steps, then continue moving in the same turn in the same direction exactly 3 steps.
