--*--

The horses keep pounding the 64 squares! At some point the mounted knights play an active role that affects the outcome of the game...an opening unpin trap, sacrifice or double sacrifice, a central outpost that dictates, a queen fork, or support checkmate, etc. Occasionally it's a goat in defeat.
