    Additionally, it can capture 2 pieces (within a 2 square range) that lie in a straight line horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
    It can also capture any piece right next to it by moving to that square or by jumping over it (if an empty square exists on same line).
  • Mad Leaping BishopThis piece is essentially the same as the Caliph or Flying Dragon. It is a combination of the moves of the bishop and the camel.
  • The Super Loony Rook - In adddition to moving and capturing like a normal rook, this piece can fire through an enemy piece and land on an empty square beyond it on the same line. It can also capture a second enemy piece on same line but it cannot extend beyond that i.e it lands on the second enemy piece's square.
