Always happy to see a new hex variant. Would it infringe any patents if I produced a zrf for this?

BTW here's a not-quite-so-ugly graphic:

Thanks Graeme, for excellent Preset. Abdul-Rahman has it right since we have exchanged information on Falcon Hexagonal Chess since beginning 2007.

It should not be necessary or desirable to change Knight to Gnu just to complete access to some surrounding set of hexes. As it is, Falcon being colour-changing goes from 1 of 3 'colours' to either of the other 2. Then whichever colour of those two it reaches, from that arrival square, now the new departure square, Falcon again follows the pattern of going to one of 2 colours other than its own very departure-square colour. Following through with a large enough sequence of moves Falcon, like Knight but unlike Bishop, can reach every hexagonal space on the board. Great concept.
