Nymph Commando X-ray

The X-ray cannot capture or check. The white X moves like the Bishop, the black X like the Queen. But in addition it may "do the long jump"; that is, it may leap over any number of occupied squares.
Please see H. van Haeringen, "Super Chess and Monarch, The Laws", for the movements and special properties of the remaining superchess pieces.
