Recommendation for a new piece.

Post by vickalan » Sun Apr 30, 2017 4:50 pm

I heard rumors that Musketeer might be releasing graphics soon for new pieces.

Will any pieces include the huygens? This is a chess piece which jumps prime numbers for squares in the directions of a rook. I have seen it discussed at math forums, and I am using it in one chess game (on an infinite board).

I know this piece might be more difficult to demonstrate, because it is good mostly for large or infinite boards. But I believe it has value for mathematicians and philosophers. I plan to keep playing with the piece in many future games.

I also have some pictures (possible graphics and board positions) that I would like to show, but don't know how to do it yet.

Anyway, I hope someone on the Musketeer team will issue a chess piece graphic for the huygens.

Thanks. 8-)

Hi
apart from updates that will be made by the Jocly team, we will release the next pieces of the Musketeer Chess-2 series.

There is no Huygens specific graphics but 2 pieces (Warrior & Glider) could serve as huygens.

Best regards
Zied

One more question: Is there a good graphic for the "Griffon"?

This piece is played in some other forums, but we are using the "dragon" shape. :?

The griffon is a famous mythical creature, but I have not seen it for chess variants yet. Does anyone have a graphic for it :?:

Thanks. :)

OK, Thanks. That looks like a bird of prey (one side of it). It's a good idea.
Maybe I will use that in a future game.

Thanks for showing it to me. 8-)
