That's true, and you'd then have an enlarged and compounded version of Makruk. I'm not sure what you'd call such a game, or even the compound of Knight and Silver. Strange that getting that much closer to Australia results in losing the Kangaroo! Currently I'm finalising a topically-themed game, but I had already planned to make my next game after that a Xiang Qi with compounds, including a stepping version of the Kangaroo, and no Ferzes. Look out for it in the next few weeks.
