No.562 by Klaus Wenda – Interesting Fairy Excelsiors by the both sides! (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.

    Clever idea (though symmetric). Somehow excelsior in two moves seems like cheating !! 🙂

    Sorry Klaus – you won’t win the 100 dollars for this 🙁

    But an amusing little thing it is!
