Verteidigungsrückzüger, Typ Høeg

Defensive Retractor, Type Høeg

In a Defensive Retractor, you retract both white and black moves. Black is defending by trying to retract the moves that will forbid (or delay) the achievement of White's goal.

One type is the Høeg retractor, named after Dr. Niels Høeg (1876-1951).

Here after any retraction by White or Black, the other side may decide that the retracted move has been a capture, and decide which piece will be resurrected. Of course, legality must be preserved at all times.
