No.158 – h#2 by Julia Vysotska – Funny play of 2 promoted pawns, promotions into Chameleons, Anti-Andernach effects.
I like this one myself, although speaking about themes there’s nothing much to write about. 🙂 I regret a little that can’t take off 1 piece to get a Meredith and also that static Sg4 (or theoretically any other piece) has to be a Chameleon piece with the only purpose – to allow a promotion into Chameleon. (JV)
Chameleon: On completing a move, a Chameleon (from classical standard type) changes into another piece, in the sequence Q-S-B-R-Q… Promotion may be to a chameleon at any stage in the cycle.
Anti-Andernach Chess: a unit (not King) changes color after its moves unless that move is a capture. (Or: a unit (King excluded) changes color on completion of a non-capturing move.)
