Event #29 Directional Knights

Condition: At least 1 knight for each player. No player can cause the other player to be in check after adjusting the direction of his knights.

Both players adjust which direction their knights are facing. First the player that started the event chooses the directions of his knights, then the other player chooses the directions of his knights. The directions must be facing either a file, rank or diagonal and a player may choose different directions among their knights.

Knights can move straight towards the direction they are facing, but they can not jump over pieces when moving this way.

Knights can only move like a normal knight to any of the 2 squares that are adjacent to the file/rank/diagonal in the opposite direction they are facing.

The knight can change the direction they are facing any time they move. They can also spend a move standing still to change direction. The direction of the knights are part of the 3-fold repetition rule.
