%N Eight white queens and one red queen on a 3 X 3 chessboard. G.f.: (1 + 2*x)/(1 - 6*x - 2*x^2).

%C The a(n) represent the number of n-move routes of a fairy chess piece starting in the central square (m = 5) on a 3 X 3 chessboard. This fairy chess piece behaves like a white queen on the eight side and corner squares but on the central square the queen explodes with fury and turns into a red queen, see A180028.

%C The sequence above corresponds to 8 red queen vectors, i.e., A[5] vector, with decimal values 255, 383, 447, 479, 503, 507, 509 and 510. The other squares lead for these vectors to A135030.
