No.99 – h#2  by Peter Harris This problem is already shown on the site in the comment to No.77. But this problem deserves to be among the original problems! It is nicely commented by Mr.Seetharaman:

An amazing concept to use Chameleon to force single check mate with Neutral pieces (and without pinning effect). So much in such a simple position – AUW and echo mates. Can anything better be done with 3 pieces ?

so I have nothing more to add, just to put it here with a pleasure! (JV)


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.

Chameleon Chess: All pieces on the board which are displayed as orthodox  Q, R, B, S,  are Chameleons. A Pawn can promote only in Chameleon-pieces.

All four promotions are by rebirths. Black cannot escape # by moving the mating neutral piece. (Author)
