My works 105 - 111

All these problems I composed for one thematical tourney, Norbert Geissler's "37" Special Tourney. It asked for compositionns showing in any manner number 37. I decided to explore possibilities of 3x7 board. I suceeded only in quantity, not in quality.

A joke. It seems like we have very far colour echo, but it is caused by very strange geometry of Möbius strip. In fact there are only 2 fully symmetrical solutions.

As Norbert Geissler pointed in his judgement, double stalemate in Haaner chess is nothing particularly surprising. But 4 phases are not bad.

Strange stipulation - how to force bK to move to b2?? Knights must play very precisely...

Double stalemate under these conditions must be finished by irreversible move by pawn, this makes humble pa2 very important.
