I am actually working on a variant like this called leapers chess which replaces rooks with wooden rooks, bishops with wooden bishops, and the queen with a centaur which moves as a nonroyal king or as a knight. I am actually writing an entry for it right now!

Good use of the standard physical pieces - unorthodox but easy to remember. For the Bishop it is a return to the original, and in some opinions for the Rook too. I have myself submitted (not to the contest, just to the pages) a variant with Leap in its name. The name was devised independently of this one, but is was this page that drew my attention to the particular suitability for this year, so thanks for that.

Is there a little bug in the ZRF with the one-step slide movement-?. If so, it is not difficult fixing it.
