No.201 – h#2 by Peter Harris – Though the black king is under “check” in the initial position, the solutions are difficult and beautiful!
I’m grateful to Peter for the dedication! And also I believe that it is thanks to Peter that I have 200 problems on the Christmas Eve! (JV)
Transmuted Kings: When they are threatened, the Kings move only like the threatening unit(s).
Super-Circe – When captured, a piece is reborn on any free field on the chess board without causing self-check or selfmate. Possible is also removal of captured piece from the board. The Pawns (white, black, neutrals, half- neutrals) can be reborn on the first or eight row also. When reborn on the first row (for Black) or on the eight row (for White) the promotion is obligatory. When reborn on the first row (for White) or on the eight row (for Black) the Pawns are immovable.
