      I’ve got a corrected version from Krassimir, and we’ve agreed that I’ll show it here first, for possible comments:

      1.-5.PPc7 – c1=Q!-3.Pa1=R-Ra3-Rh3 4-8. Pa4-a1=Q-Qa1-a6-f1 9.-15. Pa7-a1=S-c2-e3!! 16-17.Kg6-g5-h4. 18.Se3-g2 19.Ph2-h1=B 20.Rh3-h2. 21.Kh4-h3 22.Ph5-h4 Qc1xf1 Patt

        I like this problem. Good AUW even without the White series attachment to front, though this does make it more fun to solve, which I did. Clever cooking on the first version. I think this correction is sound. These attachments have potential. Great potential, to put some zest into series. I have not seen many. Thanks for making one. Reverse pawns are cool!

    There is still another cook that worked in the initial position as well: 5.RPc1=Q, then 1.a1=B 2.a3 … 4.a4 5.h1=R … 8.Rc2 … 14.Ka2 … 18.h1=S 19. Sxf2 … 21.Sb2 Qxc2=
