The knight can be said to jump one diagonal and one orthogonal, or one
orthogonal and one diagonal, so it can basically make a move over the
middle square. The middle square is supposed to be a base for the column
that supports the Duel board, so any attemt to move through there will
cause the piece to hit that column. The Dababa will have it worse than
others, since if it will attempt to JUMP it will hit that column head on,
to a point it'll need medical attention.
I sense a future variant in the making :)
