No.515 by Franz Pachl & Michael Barth – A difficult h#2 with exotic Take&Make content! (JV)
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.
Giraffe(GI): (1,4) Leaper.
Camelrider: (1,3) Rider. (Moves like a Nightrider but on Camel’s lines only.)
