The Black Home Task - during the solution, 6 black pieces return to their initial positions of chess game (director)
See P1374922
James Malcom: Some history: The name "The Black Home Task" is a pun I created to give a name to this record task. Tim Krabbe called Kirtley's s#8(P1081510) "The Back Home Task" in #289 of his chess diary(https://timkr.home.xs4all.nl/chess2/diary15txt.htm). Having been inspired by Kirtley I thought up the pun name (Back/Black) to honor him. (2020-04-22)
