Historical notesThe Waffle is a `combination chess piece', used by Ralph Betza in his Chess with Different Armies.
MovementThe Waffle has the combined movement of the Wazir and the Alfil, i.e., it can move one square horizontally or vertically, or it can jump two squares diagonally. When jumping, the square passed by may be empty or occupied.
Movement diagramThe white circles mark the bishops-wise movement, the green circles those to which the Waffle can jump.
