This time I’d like to show you my joint problem with Petko A. Petkov. I’m grateful to Mr.Petkov for his help and cooperation here! And it is always a pleasure for me (as I believe it would be for anyone) to compose a problem, discussing it and sharing ideas with a Master.

No.164 – hs#3 by Julia Vysotska & Petko A. Petkov  Kangaroo-Lion in anti-battery play with an interesting way of pinning back pieces. (JV)


Kangaroo-Lion(KL): Moves along Q-lines over 2 hurdles of either color (which may or may not stand on adjacent squares) to any square beyond the 2nd unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

Locust (LO): moves on Q-lines but only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.
