No.674 by Kostas Prentos – Excelsior + Valladao!  (JV)


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.

    It’s nice to see why 5.exf8=Q(Ih5)+ doesn’t work. Well done, Kostas!
