No.672, 673 by Cornel Pacurar – Imitators in two interesting serial miniatures!  (JV)

Definitions:

Imitator(I): Every time a piece moves an Imitator (or a set of Imitators) moves simultaneously in an identical manner. An Imitator cannot move of itself. If an Imitator cannot imitate the move of a piece, the move is illegal. An Imitator may only pass through or enter an unoccupied square and cannot move off the board. Castling is imitated by decomposing into a King move followed by a Rook move.

The series-mover expert produces two excellent imitator examples. 673 is brilliant with interesting motivation for the promotion and the series of black switchbacks !!
