H.G. Muller in the last comment here a year ago says, ''Multi-path sliders also exist.'' All multipath pieces are sliders of course. Mere one-way slider is subset of multi-path to the self-same squares. Sliding means they can be blocked, but maybe not every pathway is blocked. They slide to a target square by at least two ways. If certain commenters would read Gilman carefully, they would find Rook is the very first piece defined in M&B1 by Gilman. Rook the first piece of Gilman's 800-1000 piece-types, over half his own but over 300 by other minds. Sissa goes to every Rook square too, Sissa by any of four pathways. Betza's Crooked Bishop goes to half the Rook squares. There are theoretically infinite combinations of ways, on large enough boards, to get precisely to Rook's squares (0,1)(0,2)(0,3).... Only one of them is the straight and orthogonal usual one. Why just Rook? Only for small F.I.D.E. types.

Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra.

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
