You can use fairy conditions that allow promotions on other ranks than the 1st/8th rank (e.g. Mecklenberger chess) avoiding the need tor fairy conditions allowing pawns to enter/leave the first rank.

You’d still need a second fairy condition to allow a pawn capture of the Schnoebelen piece, Mecklenberger chess won’t need a second condition.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
