Event #73 Cooperation

Condition: None

A piece standing 1 square horizontally or vertically away from an allied piece gains support from that piece.

The pieces involved in a support can't be royal (king) or pawns.

A piece that gains support from another piece can make any move that the supporting piece could make. However it does not gain movement that the supporting piece gained from another support.

Example 1:

Whites knight is standing next to the bishop, so the knight gains support from the bishop and can move as either a bishop or knight.

Likewise, whites bishop gains support from the knight, so it can move as either a bishop or knight.

Example 2:

Just as the first example, the knight gains support from the bishop and can move as a bishop or knight.

The bishop though gains support from both a rook and a knight, so the bishop can move as either a rook, knight or bishop.

The rook gains support from the bishop and can move as either a bishop or rook.

Note that the rook and knight do not support each other. Also the rook does not gain the movement of the knight, despite the bishop being able to move as a knight since the bishop can only move that way through support.

Example 3:

Kings and pawns can not support other pieces or be supported, so the supports are the same as in the second example. Knight gains support from bishop. Bishop gainst support from knight and rook. Rook gains support from bishop.
