NEW FAIRY AIMS


In another post Kevin Begley expressed his fear about the
"ever expanding list of aims"

Here is my small (NEW??) contribution to that list !!

TWO NEW AIMS!!

1."CAPTURE MATE"
Definition:
The King in check is mated if it has ONLY capturing moves available !!

2. "NO CAPTURE MATE"
Definition:
The King in check is mated if it has NO capturing moves available !!

I am sure a lot of interesting and original problems can be composed with these aims !

That is a distortion of what I said.
I welcome more aims -- providing they are valid.
I invite you to review that "other post" -- you will find that I have proven the claims there to be contradictory, and invalid.

I do have a problem (not a fear) with some (inventors, local problem societies, database compilers etc) who would attempt to distort the fairy genre, by way of contradictory classifications.

I have no fear, because I know that no such contradiction has ever stood the test of time.
Eventually, a clear, intelligent, and consistent set of rules (and classifications) will prevail (for problem chess, and mankind alike).

edit: Both of your "new aims" are already implemented in Win Chloe, though I don't find problems using either.
I do not find these aims to be in any way inconsistent, and I would only encourage you to develop them further.
