Scorpion Chess. Poisonous Scorpions instead of pawns.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

No, it's exactly the same as a pawn, except for the the two additional knight leaps, which cannot be used for capture. No initial double-step oblique move. I don't know how useful the Scorpion is, except that it seems to work. /Mats

Can the Scorpion make a double move Scorpion-style ?

Like the pawn on b2 having the options b2-b4 (standard), b2-d4 (one
standard one oblique), b2-f4 (two oblique). Is it possible ?
