### Super-Circe Equipollents

In speaking about super-circe variations (from another thread), I thought I'd show a funny idea I had some time back...

K.Begley (original)
(= 14+14 )

PG10.5 Super-Circe Equipollents

Super-Circe Equipollents = Circe Equipollents + Anticirce Equipollents (of course).

But, wait ... there is a problem resolving rebirths when these two conditions are combined.
Both units, in fact, would share the same rebirth square!

Thus, I define the condition to give rebirth preference (when necessary) to the capturing unit.
OK, but then how is it any different from simply Anticirce-Equipollents??
Because, there is one special case where they do not share the same rebirth. :-)

My intent: 1.e4 g5 2.e5 f5 3.exf6 e.p.(+wPg7,+bPg6)! Sf6 4.g8=S! Bg7 5.Sxe7(Sc6) bxc6(d5) 6.b4 d4 7.c4 dxc3 e.p.(+bPb2,+wPb3)! 8.Sc3 b1=S! 9.Bb2 Sxd2(Sf3) 10.Qxf3(Qh5) 0-0! 11.0-0-0!

Doubled (Valladao + Ceriani-Frolkin).

Nice.

The only small reservation I have concerns the name of the conditions combination. In the Circe family, a word "Super" seems to be used for forms allowing quite free placement of the reborn pieces. In you case the rebirths are constrained, precisely defined, not freedom.

Well, if memory serves.

Super-Andernach = Andernach + Anti-Andernach.

But, you are correct. In the circe family this has a different meaning.
The name should change... except that there is perhaps limited potential here (maybe it deserves no special name).

Interesting effect could probably be achieved using locusts, too.

Kamikaze circe equipollents? [In kamikaze, both captured and capturee disappear, transforming that to circe equipollents: both captured and capturee are reborn according to the equipollents rule]

@Kevin. Anti-Andernach + Andernach = Magic Board!

I'm pretty sure it was John Rice who came up with the idea of combining Andernach with its opposite, as well as the name "Super-Andernach". But I told him on the phone shortly after this appeared in "The Problemist Supplement" that precisely these rules already existed as "Magic Board" (i.e. whenever a piece moves or captures, it changes colour) - it was invented by several Brazilian problemists sometime during the early 1960s.

@Ian,

Thank you for the information.
