No.941.1 by Sébastien Luce & Vlaicu Crişan – An improved version to No.941. (JV)


Circe Antipodes: When a piece is captured (King excluded, unless otherwise stated), it must be replaced on its rebirth square (at 4 columns and 4 ranks of the capture square) if it is empty; otherwise, the captured unit vanishes.

Anti-Circe (Cheylan): 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 not allowed. Game array squares are determined as in Circe.

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.

Fairy Bishop (BF): (WinChloe only) Moves like normal Bishop, reborns like fairy piece.

Royal piece: Piece that executes a function of the King on the board.
