roses-100No.375 by Petko A. Petkov  – My lovely “horses” actively play in this wonderful birthday gift! Complicated strategy in creation of direct and indirect anti-batteries.
I’m very touched and grateful to Petko! (JV)


Definitions:

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.

Nightrider(N): A Rider along a straight line on squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.

PAO(PA): Moves as Rook, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.

Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the K’s square.

    Great ! Nice echo effects. Different checks to black king on the same line matched by different antibattery mates on the same line the black king !

    A clever scheme! In each solution the wN must guard the square vacated by the wG.
