No.473 by Julia Vysotska & Petko A. Petkov – This light Meredith is composed for you, dear readers, as a special New Year greetings and also as a plaything for solvers to show your mastery! (JV)

Definitions:

Nightrider(N): (1,2) Rider. Operates along straight lines with squares lying a Knight’s move away from each other.

Lion(Li): Moves along Queen lines over another unit of either color to any square beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

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 King’s square.
