The Knight - basics
The knight’s unpredictable power has now doubled.
It can now control up to 8 ’empty’ fields and 16 squares.
A knight moves to the nearest field not on the same rank, file, or diagonal. (This can be thought of as moving two fields horizontally then one field vertically, or moving one field horizontally then two fields vertically—i.e. in an “L” pattern.) The knight is not blocked by other pieces: it jumps to the new location.
As the knight is not a ‘linear’ piece either square in a field the knight attacks can be occupied.
