No.608 by Chris Feather – A great maneuvers of Roses with very active usage of PWC condition! (JV)


Definitions:

PWC: When a capture is made, the captured unit (except a King) is replaced on the square the capturing unit just leaves. A Pawn is immovable on its 1st rank.

Rose (RO): (1,2) Octagonal Rider (extents the move of the Knight on a circular path e.g. a4-b6-d7-f6-g4-f2-d1-b2 or a4-c5-e4-f2).

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

    Note the yo-yo play back and forth over the same hurdle on the same line in moves 1-5, 7-8 and 12-13 … which to my mind is the main feature of the problem.
