No.187 – Ser- #6 by Peter Harris – A Series-direct problem with interesting and difficult solution! (JV)
Sentinelles: When a piece (Pawn excluded) leaves a square outside the first and last rows, it leaves a Pawn of the color of the side that played unless 8 Pawns in this color are already on the board.
Anti-Circe (Cheylan): As antiCirce Calvet except that captures on the rebirth square are not allowed.
Super-Circe: When captured, a piece is reborn on any free field on the chess board without causing self-check or selfmate. Possible is also removal of captured piece from the board. The Pawns (white, black, neutrals, half- neutrals) can be reborn on the first or eight row also. When reborn on the first row (for Black) or on the eight row (for White) the promotion is obligatory. When reborn on the first row (for White) or on the eight row (for Black) the Pawns are immovable.
Orphan (O): An orphan can move only when observed by an enemy piece; when so observed it can move like the piece(s).
