No.761 by Anatoly StepochkinValladao theme in Miniature! (JV)


Definitions:

Maximummer: Black must play the geometrically longest move or may choose from among longest moves of equal length, distances being measured from the center of each square. Diagonal and oblique distances are measured from the orthogonal coordinates by using Pythagora’s theorem (take the square root of the sum of the squares of the orthogonal distances). All other orthodox chess rules apply.

KoKo: A move is possible only if the piece moved arrives on a square next to another unit.

Lion (LI): Moves along Queen lines over another unit of either color to any square beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

No.759 by Illo Krampis – Light problem on the theme of Superproblem’s TT-131 (сyclic shift of guards). I’m happy to meet and introduce to you a new Latvian fairy composer! (JV)


Definitions:

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.

Berolina-Pawn (BP): Walk and capture are swapped relative to the orthodox Pawn. The Berolina-Pawn moves without capturing diagonally (possibly two squares if it is on the second row of its side) and captures vertically.
