|Anti-Circe:||After a capture the capturing piece (Ks included) must immediately be removed to its game array square (necessarily vacant, else the capture is illegal). Captures on the rebirth square are allowed in Anti-Circe Calvet and not allowed in Anti-Circe Cheylan. Game array squares are determined as in Circe: R, B & S go to the square of the same colour as the capture; Ps stay on the file of capture; fairy pieces go to the promotion square of the file of capture.|
|Anticipés:||A King is in check when the other side can capture him on the next move (as per chess rules) and also when the other side can capture him playing two legal moves in a row. (by Eric Huber). A king is also in check if he can be put in check.” but it does not sound very explicit. (the WinChloe definition)|

Solution: (click to show/hide)
(C+ by Winchloe 3.53)
Mates forced by zugzwang, specific pin.
Exchange of functions of white Pawns h7 and d7.
Black King switchback in b)
Explanations about the solutions:
a) 1...c1=R+ is check in Anticipés because the black Rook can attack the wK via c7. 2.h8=R parries the check according to Anticirce rules, because it occupies the bR rebirth square. At the same time, 2.h8=R gives check via h1.
2...Ra1 occupies the wR rebirth square and at the same time gives check (via a8). 3.Rh1 pins the bR to a1 and thus parries the check. In the final position, the bK’s flight to d2 is guarded by wPd7 (via promotion to Q/R on d8). The only possible move is 3...Kf2#
b) 2...c1=Q occupies the wB rebirth square and at the same time gives check (via c7, b2 or b1). 3.Bf2 pins the bQ to c1 and thus parries the check.
In the final position, the bK’s flights to e8, h1 and h2 are guarded by wPh7 (via promotion to Q/R on h8). The only possible move is 3...Kf1#
