No.256 by Peter Harris – A nice white Minimal with extreme activity of the white Locust! (JV)

No.257 by Peter Harris – Only 2 moves but rather interesting and difficult play! (JV)

Definitions:

Locust (L): moves on Q-lines but only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

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.
