No.527 by Daniel Novomesky – An elegant Tanagra-Aristocrat with excellent Isardam effects! (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.

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

Madrasi: Units, other than Kings, are paralysed when they attack each other. Paralysed units cannot move, capture or give check, their only power being that of causing paralysis.

### One Response to No.527 (DN)

1. Kjell Widlert says:

2×2 echos of a very grasshopper-Isardam-specific mate, with unexpected functions of the wK: passive in both solutions of a), very active in both solutions of b) – with the clever touch that Kg2? is illegal both times.

But shouldn’t the position be moved one step to the left (C+) so that the rightmost bG has possible, but Isardam-illegal, moves in b) too?
