White: Ke3 Bug1 Black: Ke5 Mate in 15. Same as the Rook. With K+Bu versus K+R, it appears the same draw condition(not conclusive). Though the Buffalo is able to perpetual check. Zillions values this piece at 10033, with conditionals. thus it might be as high as 20000 without such. I'll test this out. If conditionals were applied to the Buffalo, we might call it a Hartebeest(that is, if this name has not already been taken). It would make a great asset, without being too powerful in the opening and mid-game.
