MMM... I am getting hungry. Are there sausage and syrup pieces also? I may do a real late breakfast :-)

I like this combination pieces! :) This one is also known as a 'Phoenix' in Chu Sogi and Caliph (as I mentioned some years ago on the first comment of this page).

If a piece combining the moves of the Wazir and Alfil is a Waffle, is a piece combining the moves of the Tripper (3:3 leaper) and Alfil a Trifle?

This piece is called a CALIPH by chess problemists, as you can see in http://www.ktn.freeuk.com/9a.htm#(3). A suitble name for it's Arabe origins (Wazir + Alfil). Also there, you can check out some other compound piece names made from joining 2 simple pieces...
