1 - h#3 2 solutions take & make

helped selfmate: white plays and black collaborate until the last move
where white forces black to checkmate in 1 move
. take & make: after a take ("take"), the captured piece is required to make a complementary move ("make")
without taking with the moving way of the captured piece (a kind of posthumous tribute)

2 - h#2 infra-functionary anti-circe

Anti-circe : the captured piece is reborn on its original square if it is free, otherwise the capture is illegal
. infra-functional : In infra-functionary (foolishly called " defiant ", which means nothing,
by the adepts of the political-speak, whereas "infra-functionary" imposes itself as logically symmetrical of "ultra-patrol")
one can play a unit without condition, it is only to capture that one must be observed by an enemy unit.

3 - h=4 toric chessboard

toric chessboard : A bit difficult to visualize, but roughly one can go from a to h by going left
and from 1 to 8 by going down!
You can also place 8 chessboards around the main chessboard
