Fugue. Based on Ultima and Rococo this game has pieces that capture in unusual ways. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Thanks for your consideration. 

Okay, I think I mis-stated the real question in 2009. 

I think my friend and I agree that the spotter is the same side as the archer. 

If I understand correctly, the question is really where does the spotter have to be? 

* Behind the victim? (I think this is my friend's interpretation).

* Or anywhere within two spaces in a straight line (diagonal or vertical or horizontal) from the victim? (My interpretation).

In the current position of the game I cite, can the cannon pawns on e2 and a2 be seen as spotting the piece on c4?
