Multipath Chess Pieces. Suggests adding "multi-path" pieces to leapers and riders classification of pieces.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

CVP has Billiards Progressive Chess link that shows Gilman is right that, as Queen can be double-pathed off one bounce (to certain squares), both Bishop and Q qualify off two or three reflections as dual-pathed.  For Betza's Rose too, I think however return all the way to departure square after full circuit is better dis-allowed, though not a null move since they may be blocked. Thanks for suggestion of Crooked Bishop for follow-up, 'Multipath' being more general category than 'Leaper' or 'Rider' and having countless examples.

Billiard Bishops can sometimes be multi-path, depending on the nature of the bounce and how many edges it applies to. Another group of multi-path pieces, at least as regards their even moves, includes the Crooked Bishop, Crooked Rook, and their compounds with each other and with straight riders.
