Circle (not Circe!) SneK is programmed only in WinChloe for now. Hope some day it will be also included in Popeye.
If you don't have WinChloe but want to participate in the tourney - I can help you testing your problems if you send them to me by email.

An important notice: the maximum length of the problems type Series and P-Series is 8 moves (the equal of 4 regular full moves in the other genres).
