No.529 by Rainer Kuhn – Welcome to a new author with a nice Tanagra problem with two fairy conditions! (JV)
Added by author’s request, after comments, 20.04.2014: In this problem the Mirror-Circe rebirth is first before Take&Make movements, so the problem is C+ by WinChloe where the priority is given to Mirror-Circe and has no solutions by Popeye where the priority is given to Take&Make.
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.
Mirror Circe: Like Circé, but the rebirth square of a piece is the square occupied at the beginning of an orthodox game by a piece of the same kind and of the other side. Related to the square they occupied before the rebirth:
- Rooks, Bishops and Knights are reborn on the square of the same color.
- Pawns (including fairy Pawns) are reborn on the same file.
- Other fairy pieces are reborn on the same file and on the promotion rank of the other side.
