Since this page was posted I have found out the meaning of Futar: runner, same as Laufer and Loper. This meaning seems just as appropriate to the 'running jump' rule about Bishops crossing the River as does the extra-strong Elephant. So the variant on the Bachelor-size board would have the same kind of Bishops as the main variant.
