Event #33 Bouncing Bishops

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

Bishops reaching the edge of the board can "bounce" to keep moving.

Example 1:

The bishop on c1 can capture the pawn on f4 by bouncing on a3, f8 and h6.

Example 2:

Black is checkmated. The bishop on e2 is threatening the king by either bouncing on h5 or by bouncing on d1 and a4. The bishop on d2 is covering the dark squares around blacks king by bouncing as well.
