Rapid pawn
Except when capturing the rapid pawn moves 1 or 2 squares straight forward; when capturing it moves 1 or 2 squares diagonally forward; the rapid pawn cannot leap.
Except when capturing the t-pawn moves 1 or 2 squares straight forward at which move it can leap; when capturing it moves 1 square straight sideways. Thus the motion of the t-pawn is (also) T-shaped.

Combined set 1+C

Especially for players without a chess set, a matching chess set is available (only in combination with an Exchess set 1). The combined set 1+C consists of Exchess set 1 supplemented with a complete chess set (“Staunton”-style, without board), KH ca. 96 mm, white/black (ivorywood, stained), weighted and felted, deluxe quality. Highly recommendable because of the very attractive price.
