Very fancy exploitation of equihopper’s properties. Black with his first move enables jump of equihoppers every time on other square, in order it in second move create a hurdle to c4 and white then mates always with colorchanged piece. Prominency analogy.

Fusil turncoat
C+ by Winchloe

5 Fusil turncoat captures in each solution
5 white moves
5 black moves

The fairy condition “Fusil Turncoat” is rare:
When a piece captures (King included), it must return on the square occupied before, then changes of colour.

In the first variation it would be mate in Fusil after 1.g1=Q# but in Fusil turncoat white King becomes black after the capture of c2!
It also loses its character of royal piece so 2.Q:g7(wQg1) is not self check! The Queen of promotion will change three times of colour before to mate.
In the second variation, the promotion of white g7 Pawn in Knight provokes its return on g7 in black Knight then after a change of colour it is “sacrified” in e6 : the capture 3.f:e6(wPf7) provokes the return of black Pawn f7 in f7 …but in white Pawn! Follow an “orthodox” promotion in white Queen. This time it is the black Bishop g8 after a change of colour which will mate in f5.

White GNd6 could mate but his own pawns constrain from this. BQ these squares in every solution releases and with his second move determinates choice of way for wGN.

5 defense motives (ABCDE)
5 harmfull effects (A´B´C´D´E´)
5 kinds of fairy pieces


Author confirmed his reputation as discoverer and processed tourney theme by using defense motifs and harmful effects:
A = capturing of threating piece – A` = pinning of black piece 2.Se2#
B = preparation jump of hurdle from threating line – B` = guarding of king square by creating of white antibaterry 2.Bxf4#
C = pinning of threating piece by rook hopper – C` = guarding release of mate square 2.Qxg4#
D = blocus of promotion square for white pawn – D` = line opening for white leo to mate square 2.LEd6#
E = closing of mate line – E` = immobilization jump of the hurdle into mate line of pawns promoted to kangaroo 2.b8=KA#

Using of 5 miscellaneous defense motifs and 5 miscellaneous harmful effects in fairy execution requires lot of analytical accomplishment. But severe processing shows endless opportunities of orthodox terms in fairy chess conditions.

Special honourable mention not only for symbolic count of moves but also for longest solution. White has trouble while get the black king in stalemate. Unfortunately white king nor did cross.

Very showy as a group of imitators shifts here and there on the board. As a result is always bizzare mate.

5 variations

5x executed this same anti-baterry
5x enter of 5 different hoppers on this same square


Seemingly easy twomover but in very tricky construction. Before key is no mate but after key wherever black pawns are moving, they allow jump some grasshopper on d5.
Impressive.

In final position 14 pieces are blocked (Kh1, Rb8, Be8, Pa7,b7,d7,f7, Ka8 Re1, Rf8, Rg1, Pe2,g2,h2), whereas 6 are pinned (Qc8, Bd8, Sg8 by Pg2 and Bd1, Sb1, Sf1 by Pb7). In fact the work is based on the AntiCirce specific pinning of pieces by two Ps – g2 and b7 – ready to promote.
Mathematically expressed: the problem contains amount of thematic elements, but general artistic impression is obscure.
