Such a complex problem using a new fairy piece…..

Well… it’s not all that difficult to understand a piece that changes colour on each move; only the AntiCirce rules (which comes first, colour change or rebirth?) adds some complexity.

Why Black cannot take back f2xg1=B? (Several times in course of solution)

Sorry, my error – Anticirce prevents it, of course.

Obviously, the key is 1.Kc5xPc6[Ke1]! (not 1.Kc5xBc6[Ke1]!). And 5.wSf1-e3 (not 5.wSe1-f3).

Why not 7.wPg5xf6 e.p.[bPf2]! f7-f5 8.Kc6-b5 e4xQf3[f7]+ 9.Kd7-c6 – &.1.Qg3# as an alternative?

Sorry, misread your message.

And as last move, instead of Kd7-c6, white can also retract Kd7xPc6[Pc7].

9.Kd7xPc6[Pc7] is illegal, Joost. Here is Anticirce, not Circe.
