No.332 by Nicolas Dupont  – Author shows an example of his own condition – “Back Home” – with 4 interesting promotions (see an article “The back-home fairy condition – Nicolas Dupont“)! (JV)

Definition of the back-home fairy condition:

a) If a piece can legally move to the square it occupied in the initial position of the problem, it must move to this back-home square.

b) Back-home moves are prevalent to the virtual capture of the opponent King by any piece, i.e. “checks are fairies”.

c) If several back-home moves are legal, the side-on-move chooses which one to play.

d) The back-home square of a Pawn which is promoted during the solution is the initial square of this Pawn.
