Piece that moves like bishop or nightrider.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]KelvinFox wrote on 2020-03-12 UTCThanks Fergus. I am really proud for writing this Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-03-11 UTCI added a link to the Bishop article and upgraded this to a Piececlopedia article. Ben Reiniger wrote on 2020-03-11 UTCI've made a few grammatical and layout edits, and Reviewed the page. For now it is a Piece article, pending Fergus's review for the Piececlopedia. I listed Betza as the inventor. KelvinFox wrote on 2020-03-11 UTCI've added the value and another name by Gilman. Is this page good enough for Piececlopedia? KelvinFox wrote on 2020-02-10 UTCI've asked Mayhematics on twitter about the banshee piece Edit: I've got an answer, he thinks the name was his (George Jelliss) idea Kevin Pacey wrote on 2020-02-10 UTCWikipedia mentions a Banshee (BNN) piece type on more than one occasion. Here's one link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AFairy_chess_piece#Fairy_piece_values Long ago (I think I then even mentioned this on CVP), the wiki on fairy chess pieces mentioned the Banshee (BNN) but apparently it has been largely edited out. The only mention of the Banshee currently (that I can see) is that it is sometimes given as another name for a Unicorn - this is said under the Unicorn entry (the one for (3D) Raumschach), which is a bit misleading since earlier elsewhere (before the edit I referred to) the Banshee had been explicitly given as BNN. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy_chess_piece#List Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-02-09 UTCPocket Mutation Chess calls this piece a Cardinalrider. Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-02-06 UTCUsing the bash shell in Windows 10, I did a grep search on every issue of Variant Chess, and I didn't find any mention of Banshee. I did another search for Nightrider just to make sure I was doing it correctly, and I got a list of results. Since Jelliss's page is dated even later than Betza's and Paulowich's use of the piece, it's still unknown whether the piece goes back any further than Betza's game in 1995. KelvinFox wrote on 2020-02-06 UTCThe name seems to be a invention by George Jelliss Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-02-06 UTCI found a link to All the King's Men in a guide by David Howe. Unfortunately, it just gives the name and description with no further information. KelvinFox wrote on 2020-02-06 UTCAll The Kings men mentioned Banshee. I now also discovered Jörg Knappen used it his CwdA army Fearful Fairies under that name Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-02-06 UTCBetza's use is earlier than Paulowich's, but if it has been used in fairy chess problems, the invention would probably predate Betza. What is your source on the Banshee name and its use in fairy chess? I tried to look up Banshee in A Guide to Fairy Chess by Anthony Dickins, but it wasn't listed. KelvinFox wrote on 2020-02-06 UTCDoes anyone know who first 'invented' this piece? 13 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
