The Lion is well known for it’s power of be able to mate a King unaided even by it’s own king. And yet two Ferocious Leopards vertically stacked, as shown above, are such a good example of perfect shape that they are invulnerable to the Lion.
The following diagram:
again shows the powerlessness of the Lion in the face of self-protecting step-movers. This position is a draw (assuming a suitable modification of the repetition rule. E.g. If at least one player has no more than 5 pieces, then repetition is allowed, and results in a draw).
Another well-known example is that the basic castle is immune to an unassisted Lion (even the assistance of the king is insufficient). I.e. this position is also a draw:
Incidentally, the way to get 81Dojo to record a draw is as follows:
- Both players agree it is a draw (verbally)
- Both players disconnect (by closing the brwoser tab/window) within 30 seconds of each other.
- This requires trusting your opponent (if you’re the first to disconnect). But in case you don’t know him/her well enough to trust them, simply reconnect immediately. If your opponent has not yet disconnected, reconnect to your game, and carry on.
