 By M  Winther. Cannonrider Chess. The Cannonrider moves differently depending on square colour: on white squares as a Nightrider; else as a Chinese Cannon.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

i agree with Fergus. The name Cannonrider is misleading. 'Cannonightrider Elk' is more accurate, or perhaps something more original, like maybe.. "raindeer"? A cannonrider is a piece that can jump over one piece and then jump over another, but not necessarily as a multiple displacer (i.e., able to capture or change the color of more than one piece). Otherwise, it's a perfectly decent game.
