No.209 – h#5 by János Mikitovics – Nice and long play of the neutral CP – trio! (JV)
Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same color 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.
Maximummer – Black must play the geometrically longest move or may choose from among longest moves of equal length, distances being measured from the center of each square. Diagonal and oblique distances are measured from the orthogonal coordinates by using Pythagora’s theorem (take the square root of the sum of the squares of the orthogonal distances). All other orthodox chess rules apply.
Chameleon-Pawn: A pawn which is possible to promote only into standard Chameleons (S-B-R-Q-S…).
