Here's one easy to get a quick handle on. Sure, Grasshopper and Nightrider on 8x10 suit fine. Grasshoppers have been used before as a Pawn contingent in Joseph Boyer's own Grasshopper Chess, the piece having been discovered by Dawson. Boyer and Parton are the Frenchmen problemists turned variantists mid-20th century. Simon Jepps wrote on 2008-11-21 UTCAverage ★★★The Grasshoper's an interesting piece, had not heard of it before. Cheers for the read. 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
