No.740 by Alberto Armeni –  AUW in #2 Anti-Circe! (JV)


Anti-Circe: After a capture the capturing piece (Ks included) must immediately be removed to its game array square (necessarily vacant, else the capture is illegal). Captures on the rebirth square are allowed. Game array squares are determined as in Circe.

Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same colour in the case of pieces, on the file of capture in the case of pawns, and on the promotion square of the file of capture in the case of fairy pieces. If the rebirth square is occupied the capture is normal.

    There are at last a dozen white AUWs in AntiCirce #2, both more economical and more unified than this, but the construction here is good (Black has only the thematical officers) and the theme is always worth respect.

    White AUW was one of the easier themes I think in Circe, Anticirce and Madrasi. But as Widlert points out, they can be interesting when made nicely like this.
