But even so, the King won't be in check because the Elephant can only capture/check as Knight or Pawn. Just remember the theme of Knight and Pawn: E can capture/check as N or P, but cannot move infinitely as N or P. Another note: You've misunderstood infinite movement, even though you use the correct term to explain it! What I mean is, even if the Elephant were able to check like a King, the opponent's King would not be in Check because the E can only move infinitely in a loop. So the checked square would be at the opposite end of the diagonal, not the the next diagonal square down. On values: You're right about the Knight being valued less on a larger board. I don't think though that the other pieces have more range - they are still able to perform the same task - it's just the Knight has less range. I don't think then that the Knight is terribly devalued, only slightly. Simon Jepps wrote on 2010-02-11 UTCGood ★★★★Hi guys. I've valued the Elephant at 6 points, but this is only an assumption since I am not too familiar with the mathematics involved in working it out to atomic precision. If any of you reckon you might have a better idea of its exact value, feel free to comment here.
