Two joint problems with Andernach condition by Vito Rallo  & Emmanuel Manolas:

No.247 – A specific realization of Umnov theme! 

No.248 – Chameleon-echo after change of colors of black Ss!   



Andernach Chess: A piece (excluding King) changes its color after any capturing move.  Rooks on a1, h1, a8 and h8 can be used for castling, provided the usual other rules for that move are satisfied.

Grasshopper(G): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.
