No.715 by Karol Mlynka – Pressburger King as Reх solus! (JV)


Royal piece: Piece that executes a function of the King on the board.

Pressburger King (Super-Transmuting King): King which definitively takes up the nature of the checking piece (and thus loses his royal status).

Ultraschachzwang: A piece may move only to check. If it doesn’t have checking moves it is stale-mated.

Grasshopper(G): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

Nightrider(N): (1,2) Rider. Operates along straight lines with squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.
