Moves in a diagonal zigzagline or like a Rook.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]M. Howe wrote on 2003-01-09 UTCIn fact the rules of Optima include a crooked rook. It's called a 'Ranger.' In the games I have seen it used it's about an average strength piece relative to the other Optima pieces, not a game-breaker at all. It's not overpowering on a crowded board because it is relatively blockable. As the board opens up it becomes stronger.
