Event #30 Drunken Bishops

Condition: At least 1 bishop for each player. Starting this event does not cause a player to be in check.

Bishops must make a 90 degree turn after moving 1 square in a diagonal direction.

The diagram above shows how the bishop can move.

Example 1:

Whites bishop can capture blacks rook with Bxa8 (the bishop makes a turn at the g2 square).

White is not able to play a move like Bd3 or Bh3, since it needs to make a turn on e2 or g2.

Example 2:

Blacks king is not in check since if whites bishop moves towards it, it must make a turn at f7.

Whites bishop is pinned, so moves like Bf5 or Bg6 are not legal. However, white is allowed to play Be4 or Bxe8.
