4 new problems on this page as of 17/18-Jul-2012. It’s so nice to get 2 new problems by Peter Harris – for solvers this time! And I’m happy to welcome two new authors at the site: Karol Mlynka from Slovakia and Kenneth H. M. Solja from Finland! 

No.43 – h#11 by Peter Harris – FOR SOLVERS! So many Kangaroos are waiting to be solved! This problem is published without solution for now as the author would like you to SOLVE! Please send your solution in the comments (but don’t use solving programs!). I’ll add the solution later either from your comments, or after one week! (JV)

No.44 – hs#3 by Karol Mlynka – Non-standard mates after promotion of Chameleon-pawn. (JV)

No.45 – hs#3 by Kenneth H. M. Solja -Interesting echo-mates with a nice effects of Andernach-Grasshoppers. (JV)

No.46 – h#10 by Peter Harris – FOR SOLVERS! Same as No.43 this problem is published without solution for now as the author would like you to SOLVE! Please send your solution in the comments (but don’t use solving programs!). I’ll add the solution later either from your comments, or after one week! (JV)


See most of the Definitions in Fairy Terms section or click the fairy piece or condition below to go right to its definition on that page:

Kangaroo (KA)

NAO (NA)

Circe

AntiCirce

Some Definitions I’ll show right here for now (later will be added to the Terms page):

Transmuted Kings: When in check a King moves like the checking piece(s).

Chameleon-pawn: Haven’t found any definition and author’s comments, so by the logic, I believe this pawn is of Chameleon type to allow the promotion of it into Chameleon piece while none also Chameleon piece is present on the board. (Please correct me who knows a better definition!!)

Andernach Grasshoppers (AG): Moves as Grasshopper, but the hurdle changes its color after it is jumped over.

    No.43 – as far as I’ve understood, Transmuted King plays only one move like the checking piece but then moves like a King until another check.
    No.46 – I guess there are 3+2 Kangaroos ?

    • JuliaJulia says:

      About No.46 – sorry, you’re right, all 5 kangaroos, have added under diagram!

      About Transmuted King: I’ve got the explanation from Mr.Harris:

      “Yes with TransmutingKings a King moves like the piece(s) checking it but after it is no longer in check it reverts back to normal. [Of course it can get out of check other than by moving].

      So a definition could be:

      Transmuting King: When in check a King moves like the checking piece(s).”

      I’ll correct the definition above the diagrams. Thanks!!
