    No need to display setplay as nothing changes after key. I wonder if most of the fairy units are necessary. It seems they can be replaced orthodox pieces. Personally I would avoid use of fairy pieces if possible.

  2. Kenneth Solja says:

    Well, there is a diagram error. Instead of white rook in a8 there should be a white Queen in c8. This will give the problem a second try.
    Seetrahaman is correct that set play is not needed to write here.
    I just wanted to show wickets with fairy pieces.

  3. Kenneth Solja says:

    And I like to point out that the diagram error is author’s fault, not the publisher’s

  4. Seetharamanseetharaman says:

    The main feature of the problem is the four black defences are on b6. This can be done just grasshoppers and orthodox pieces.
    For example:
    white Bg8 Ka2 Qf8 Pc5b4 Sc6 Ra8g3
    black Pb7a6b5f4 Sd7 Ka4 Ge3e6
    #2 1.Qd8!
    Even e3 can be a black bishop! I am sure with modifications a fifth defence on b6 might also be possible.

  5. Kenneth Solja says:

    Dear Seetharaman,
    this has been done as orthodox problem, but I wanted to make it as fairy now, so please don’t compare those two worlds ..
    Thank you!

      I understand. Whether to use fairy pieces when orthodox men will do the same job is a frequently raised question. Let the solvers and composers decide for themselves.! My view is what I said in my first post.
