Makes a Knight leap, and can make additional leaps in the same direction.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Anonymous wrote on 2005-02-19 UTCNightriders can give rise to some interesting chess situations. For example: White: Kd2, Pe2 Black: Kg8, Rd8, Nh7, Pd4 Black to move (N=nightrider) 1. ... Nf6+ 2. e4 dxe3(e.p)+++ Which results in an unprecedented triple check. Example #2: White: Ke4, Rc4, Ne1, Nf2, Pf4, Pg5 Black: Ke6, Qa3, Rd7, Re7, Pf7, Pg6 White to move 1. Nc2+ Kd6+ 2. Kd4+ Ke6+ 3. Ke4+ Kd6+ 4. Kd4+ Ke6+ 5. Ke4+ Kd6+ etc. This results in forced mutual perpetual check, which means that the players have no choice but to continue delivering checks indefinitely, unless the draw-by-repetition rule is invoked.
