This thematical tourney asked for any kind of compositions on vertical cylindric board. I began composing for it already in time when I used computer programs for checking all my compositions, so I became rather lazy. But I had no program for cylindric board in that time!

So I invented simple scheme (with low chance of cooks) incorporating nice cylindric effects, but, as judge Kjell Widlert rightly points, everything is rather schematical.

Personal rating: C.

Strange composition. In its own time I asked people on Internet Retros List for helping me testing its correctness. A few people asked for details and one of them, Göran Wicklund, also found a cook in preliminary version. Next version were tested by him too and we decided to publish the composition as a join one. Very nice idea, I think. It is a question, whether it is or is not Göran's first opus...

As judge Kjell Widlert pointed, there is nothing especially surprising in identifying white pieces, nevertheless at least wQe2 is well placed. Main ideas are in black King's march out of cage and 11 moves through h-a line.

Personal rating: B.

White Rex solus, total analogy in 3 solutions. Rather short...

White Rex solus, but only in diagram position. Then comes intensive use of magic squares. Unfortunately one of mates is not model and magic square e3 is a strong cookstopper. And to say truth, 1st and 3rd mates were originally only cooks, other two mates making perfect far echo.

Personal rating: B.

h#3 (1+7)
Magic squares c3, d1, e3

Lucky find. Sentry chess is probably the most popular fairy condition for double-king problems. Here you can see 4 mates by white Queen...

Personal rating: B.

Sentry chess, Couscous Circe
b) everything 1 row up
c) everything 2 rows up
