Event #39 Bishop pair

Condition: At least 2 bishops for each player.

A player may move 2 bishops during the same turn. However, when moving 2 bishops, neither bishop move can be a capture.

Example 1:

White plays Bb2, Bh7#

Example 2:

White plays Bb5+, Bh6

Black plays Bd7, Bf8. Black was not allowed to play Bd7, Bxh6 since he is not allowed to capture while moving 2 bishops.

White plays Bxf8. Since it is a capturing move, he may only move 1 of his bishops. Then the game continues as normal.
