Grand Rider Chess:;id=1082

Grand Rider Chess explores the interaction of line pieces (riders) and pawns. All pieces except the king are riders, which move repeatedly in the same direction. Whether the piece slides (e.g., bishop), or jumps (e.g., alfilrider), it can move through arbitrarily many empty squares, and possibly capture an enemy piece on the last square. The squares of the board are colored to make it easier to see the moves and ranges of the various jumping riders. There are just enough of each kind of rider to cover all the squares.
