The chess pieces of Zugzwang's Last Move have been reborn with the help of a magic feather, becoming a powerful knight who will defend your cheese to the death. Using strategy gleaned from his origins as a chess set, and a stubbornness that can only come from being made of stone, he will fight off any rodent attacker in the name of his King or Queen.
