No.386 by Daniel Novomesky – Aristocrat-problem with 6 pieces, 6 solutions and model-mates!! (JV)


Definitions sent by author:

Radial Leaper (RK) – is a unit which moves by jumping over another unit of opposite colour (called a hurdle) in the way that the geometrical distance between destination square and the hurdle square (in any direction) is the same than the distance between the RK square and the hurdle square. (Example: black RKd6 can move through white hurdle Kg1 to the destination square b4 because d6-g1 = g1-b4)

ISARDAM – any move, including capture of the King, is Isardam illegal if a Madrasi-type paralysis would result from it.

MADRASI – like units other than Kings are paralysed when they attack each other. Paralyzed units can not move, capture or check, their only power being that of causing paralysis.

    Radial leaper … unusual leaper. Am I correct when I say that Radial leapers cannot give mate or check to a lone black king (unless they fire a battery), because they need an opposite color piece to leap and check?

      It is true. Lone black king is not dead! Radial leaper is a unit which moves by jumping over another unit of opposite colour….
