No.350 – Seetharaman Kalyan – A nice idea and very difficult solution through the first checking move! (JV)
Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same colour in the case of pieces, on the file of capture in the case of pawns, and on the promotion square of the file of capture in the case of fairy pieces. If the rebirth square is occupied the capture is normal.

Theme: Transformation of white battery and forcing formation of black battery! (Author)
Indeed a nice idea but such a clear solution could be actually found very EASILY.
True. I dont think it would be difficult to solve even though the black battery is not in place. It would have too easy without the first move which I added later.
