Event #81 Rocks

Condition: None

Both players chooses an empty square on their board half (1-4th rank for white; 5-8th rank for black). First the event starter chooses and then the other player. There are rocks on those squares. No piece can land on a square with a rock and only jumpers (knights) can jump over them.

Example 1:

If the event started here, the marked blue squares indicate the squares white can choose from. The marked red squares indicate the squares black can choose from.

Example 2:

Whites bishop and blacks rook are blocked by the rock. White can not play moves like Be5 or Bf6 and black can not play moves like Re5 and Re4.

Example 2:

Knights can jump over rocks, although they can not move to them, so black can not play Ne5.
