Since you did the work for that file and are registered here, why don't you add the link here instead?  Let me know if this is possible...

The ninja guard cannot move beyond 2 squares and only move diagonally - I think that is clear. 

What you are asking should be possible IF there is no empty square between the friendly piece and enemy piece as in diagram  described by the line:
'It can capture the pawn on b6 by jumping over the knight at c5.'

Are you asking if there is an empty square after the knight on c5 (b6 was empty) if it can capture a piece say on a7? The answer is NO since it can only jump or move 1 or 2 squares diagonally. 

I will reword the description - there seems to be some confusion with it.

Alrighty then! The only question I have then is can the ninja guard jump over a friendly piece and move 2 squares to then capture an enemy piece on the 2nd square past the friendly piece it jumped over?

White NG(JUMPS)>White Bishop----> empty space after Bishop--->space 2(Enemy).

That's all! If that is move is ossible, then i'm already prepared to submit it and will do so if you verify that move!

be well!

You are free to submit it to zillions. I think the movement should be clear enough from the description.

email me at [email protected] if you wish to obtain or check out the zrf I have made for your game.

zrf for zillions-of-games. I would also like to see if I did it correctly and if you want me to submit it to zillions-of-games.
