Helpmate of any length. All pieces will exchange their places (compared diagram and mating position). If all pieces exchange the places in one cycle, fairy condition or pieces are allowed (but not both). If there are more separated cycles or reciprocal exchanges, only orthodox helpmates are accepted. In the case of more solutions or twins is required exchange of places of all pieces in each of them. Special prize for the orthodox composition with exchange of places of all pieces in one cycle.

Well, after Michal was forced to provide these beautiful examples, the area of originality is pretty reduced. I wonder whether some technical static pieces or at least the Pawns are allowed?

> Nikola: No, static technical pieces are not allowed.

Thanks for these two dishearteningly beautiful examples. My reason for asking is because I could not clearly understand when Fairy conditions are permitted.

There is a small type error in the solution of the first example:
4. Ka6 instead of 4. Ka5
The correct solution should read as follows:
1.- Sb8 2.Kb4 Ba6 3.Ra4 Kb7 4.Ka5 Sc6#
