If a King moves next to the PieceEater, then the PieceEater will on the immeadiately following move, move so as not to be adjacent to the King -- you can even sort of chase PieceEaters around with your King. This can be determined from the following two rules: <p><ul> <li> The PieceEater moves after each player's move <p> <li> The PieceEater will not capture a King, nor will it move to a square adjacent to a King (with adjacency being determined viewing the board as a torus, so a King on a1 prevents the PieceEater from moving to a1 and to any square that the PieceEater could move to from a1). </ul> <p> But I admit it isn't as obvious as it could be.
