Is this ready to play?  Does a 3-leap mean the frog can only leap out 3?  Can it leap out 2?  See the ? in the diagram.


Also I sort of want more frogs!  Remove bishops and put in frogs for a total of 4 frogs?  good idea?  Once you loose a frog you've lost access to 1/2 of the board. What do you think of a pond in the center where a frog can jump in (1 move), make 1 orthogonal move in the pond (2nd move), and then leap out (3rd move).  This would make a diagonal switch to the other side of the board.  Please invite me.  I'd like to play this game with you.
