Reciprocal final corner-positions of the kings. Second black moves = passive annihilation. 2x4 Take & Make capturing. Lions & Grasshoppers: The Grasshopper is a reduced Lion. They both move like a Queen (orthogonally and diagonally), but only over another unit on the line of movement. With the help of lions and grasshoppers in Take & Make Chess it is possible to create beautiful and complex ODT compositions. (Author)

Borislav, your problem is fantastic !
a lot of movement all over the board !
Even if the solver can “guess” that white King will be mated on a corner, the ways to reach it are very secret. Congratulations !
