No.333 by Dominique Forlot  – Nice to see that condition “Back Home” by Nicolas Dupont is going to become popular! (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.

    I like the promotions setup (Q,r) (Q,b) (Q,s) and the various back-home tricks used in the 3 solutions!
