It's one of my favorite movements. Ingersoll's version is exactly the same as my version (moves 3 spaces of which one should be a jump but it could only jump over a single tile). However I added more power to the Jumper by being able to end its movement on top of the regular Spider and move like a regular Spider while on top of it by dragging the regular Spider underneath along with it.
The checker bug idea has been one I've always thought had merit.
By that I mean the bug moves by jumping exactly one other piece. The bug can then move repeatedly as long as it only jumps a single piece.
A piece jumped cannot be jumped again on the same move.
Yes, I proposed this movement 2 years ago with the introduction of the Cricket. And I appreciate your comment on my Geek list. It had the most favorable reaction of all the bugs I proposed, probably because the movement is so simple and can easily be incorporated as an expansion piece.
