Judge Michel Caillaud: Composer succeeds in making Schnoebelen promotion less obvious, thanks to using 2 phases with 2 switchbacks as motivation. The need of a black tempo is the trick that allows differentiation of the phases (and the Schnoebelen Rook becomes an "anti-Schnoebelen" Rook!). Well done.
Sobrecases: Specific try play:

Joost de Heer: This is probably Kriegspiel? If there are no black pieces, the knight path on moves 25/26 can go over f6 as well. (2022-10-25)
A.Buchanan: Good catch, Joost. The black units (because of bK) are necessary. I haven’t heard the term Kriegspiel used to describe this. (2022-10-25)
Henrik Juel: This is a series proof game (where only White moves, and he may not check with an intermediate move)
I see no relation to the fairy condition Kriegspiel (2022-10-25)

SB: "Sehr schwer zu lösen, weil kaum Anhaltspunkte in der Diagrammstellung sichtbar sind. Letztendlich schält sich thematisch ein Donati und ein Anti-Pronkin auf weißer Seite heraus. Als Rätsel ok, thematisch zeigt die folgende Aufgabe, was möglich ist." MRic hingegen: "Der wUW-Th8 verlässt sein UW-Feld, nur um später wieder dorthin zurückzukehren und geschlagen zu werden, wonach letztendlich sein Original-Bruder von h1 seinen Tod rächt und seinen Platz auf dem UW-Feld einnimmt. Das ist wieder ein schönes Stück aus dem Hause Thannheiser - kurz, prägnant und witzig, hat mir sehr gut gefallen!" KHS: "Interessant, wie der wT nach h8 gelangt." TZ: "Hier sind die Spuren des sS und whB noch deutlich zu erkennen, so dass die ersten Züge recht klar sind. Die linke mit der rechten Hälfte dann zu verbinden, hat noch ein wenig Mühe gekostet, da ich es länger mit einem wL auf h8 versucht hatte." JB: "Ein starkes T-Duell mit w 'Vorweg-Phönix-Turm' - noch einmal Ceriani-frolkin." HG: "In Fast-Homebase wird ein geschlagener Donati-Turm durch einen Anti-Pronkin-Turm ersetzt. Dupont möchte das allerdings sogar orthodox inzwischen gern doppelt gesetzt haben. Was bei Schlagschachaufgaben in der Regel den Kunstgenuss trübt, sind die (offenbar unumgänglichen) nichtthematischen Schlagfälle, die erkennbar auch die Konstruktion erleichtern."
