The Leopard and Cannon Kit.
The Leopard is a new piece that combines moves of a Knight and a Bishop with a limited range of 2 squares. Compared to Archbishop (Bishop and Knight), it’s a less powerful piece, but this limited Bishop range adds a strategical component to sharp tactics.
The Cannon moves differently that the Cannon in Xiangqi, but it can be used for a western chess set to mimic games played in China and Japan.
