No.747 by Gani Ganapathi & S.K.Balasubramanian – Two pairs of thematic pieces in action! (JV)


Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the King’s square.

    Change of functions (or better: captures) r/b ends up in pseudo-identical specific ideal stalemates – nice!

      Dear Manfred,

      Thanks for pointing out that the stalemates are ideal ones.
