Elkrider Chess. Elkrider plus regular pieces. The Elkrider moves like a Nightrider if standing on white squares, otherwise it moves like a Rook.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The Elkrider is stronger than the Elk because it can ride continuously like a Nightrider. However, the evaluation is preliminary.

In description of 'Elk chess' you told that elk's value is 4. Elkrider is same piece (onlysquares, where it's rook and where it's knightrider changed), but it's value is 5... Why they are stronger?

Very interesting the idea.

I have a question about the elkrider, and the elk, so to speak. Can I
combine the moves in a single play? I mean: move like a rook and then
jump, or jump and slide in a single movement?
