Moves and captures one square straight forward.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Jose Carrillo wrote on 2008-06-21 UTCNot sure what you mean by extra move. When the pawn crosses the river, it gains the ability to move and capture sideways. It still can't go backwards. BobbyQ wrote on 2008-06-20 UTCAverage ★★★After the pawn is moved across the river can I continue to take an extra move whether I'm capturing or not? Also, can the pawn after it crosses the river move backwards? Andy Thomas wrote on 2006-05-04 UTCyes, the pawn can capture sideways... once it has crossed the river... Christine Bagley-Jones wrote on 2006-05-04 UTCthere is only a few lines of info on this pawn, and your question is answered under the heading 'movement' and also in the diagram :) a noob wrote on 2006-05-03 UTCAverage ★★★After the pawn had crossed the river can it kill sideways? Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-06-28 UTCGood ★★★★Sorry, by 'at once', I meant 'immediately' or 'from the start' rather than 'at the same time', which I now see that it could be misinterpreted as. I should have given a rating as well. Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-06-27 UTCIt is also worth mentioning on this page the use of an essentially similar piece in the variants played in (1) Korea, where it can move all three directions at once; (2) Japan, where it moves only in the forward direction until it reaches the enemy camp and is then optionally gains 5 other one-step moves including the sideways ones. 7 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
