No.486 by Krassimir Gandev – Nice Miniature with 3 Chameleon-echo mates!  (JV)


Locust(L): Moves along Queen lines only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

Poseidon(PO): The Marine King is named “Poseidon”. The Poseidon moves like a King when not capturing, and captures adjacent pieces like a Locust.

Amazone (AM): Queen + Knight

Super-pawn(SP): Moves straight forwards and captures diagonally forwards through as many empty squares as desired. Promotion is normal.

  1. Geoff Foster says:

    The solutions are practically identical, but the position is economical and the forced mate is good.
