Falcon Hexagonal Chess. The Falcon into the Hexagonal world. (Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I wonder about a more Wellisch sort of Falcon. This one would make three steps, divided in the customary Falcon way but between any two adjacent wazir directions. It can move to any of twelve squares, each along any of three paths. These twelve squares are exactly those reachable in three wazir steps but not hit by rook or Wellisch knight (Glinski ferz), analogous to the rectangular Falcon's sixteen destinations that are those not reachable by rook, bishop, or knight within three steps (wazir or ferz) of the origin.
