A multiple displacer is a version of a piece that can capture enemy pieces partway along a longer move.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-02-10 UTCAs I say, the term is not my own, it just fitted with my idea for enhancing the Xiang Qi Elephant (as now finally featured in my Cannonless XQ variants at http://www.chessvariants.org/xiangqivariants.dir/xq_vars.html). It has since occurred to me that you can even have MD Pawns. 'But Pawns move only one step!' I hear you cry. Ah, but what if you extend the initial double move to captures, allowing a Pawn on its starting rank to make two successive captures in the same (diagonal) direction in one move? This thought occurred to me when devising a variant in which the Pawn's double move may be two noncapturing orthogonal moves, two capturing diagonal moves, or one of each in either order. I plan to submit the variant under the name Eurofighter Chess, as it extends a double move first introduced in Europe.
