No.819 by Peter Harris – Rarely shown mate to the both Kings in a problem with three fairy conditions! (JV)


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. Game array squares are determined as in Circe.

Patrol Chess: A piece can capture or give check only if it is observed by a piece of its own side.

Sentinels Pion Advers: When a piece (not a Pawn) moves, a Pawn of the colour of the opposite side appears on the vacated square if it is not on the first or the last rank, and if there are less than 8 Pawns of that colour on the board.

This is C+ WinChoe for a). For b) WinChloe thinks the last move Bxe7 (Be7 -> c1) is illegal.
