No.353 by Sébastien Luce – АUW in Miniature with three conditions! (JV)
Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same color in the case of pieces, on the file of capture in the case of pawns, and on the promotion square of the file of capture in the case of fairy pieces. If the rebirth square is occupied the capture is normal.
Anti-Circe: After a capture the capturing piece (Ks included) must immediately be removed to its game array square (necessarily vacant, else the capture is illegal). R, B & S go to the square of the same colour as the capture; Ps stay on the file of capture.
Disparate: When one side plays with a piece of “x” type (including King), the opposite side can’t play immediately with a piece of the same type as “x”. (For example: in case of white move 1.Kd5 Black can’t play with its King which in this moment is under half-moving paralyze.)
