or an AG that changes both kings when it moves over any one of them?

I was actually wrong in my last comment as the Circe-Grasshopper can also capture a piece. But the name 'Circe-Grasshopper' (as 'Andernach-Grasshopper' or 'Einstein-Grasshopper') is not good a Circe Grasshopper is already a Grasshopper which returns to ist rebirth square when it is captured.

Actually, Circe-Grasshopper is not really a new piece : it's a 'Circe Bicaptures Locust' :<br> a Locust is a Grasshopper which captures its hurdle.<br> a Bicaptures piece can capture friend units as well as opposite units.
