1 - #4 All-in chess Growing Men

#4 All-in-chess Growing men(8+3)
All-in chess "Complete" or "all-in" chess. One may play one's own pieces or the opponent's pieces, provided that one does not return immediately, which would cancel a move made. For example in Kf1, Pa7 & h2 / Kh1, you mate in 2 by 1 a8B+! (1 a8Q+? Qa6) Kxh2 2 Kh1!!# (this is not the same position), which would be illegal without the Ph2.
Furthermore, in this problem we are in growing men where a unit can never play a move shorter than the last move it made.


2 - #11 all-in-chess Growing Men

White King is on a7 (but yeah !) which is legal, provided that each King is "enlarged".

#2 argentinian chess(8+5)
🨑c8: Faro
🨒g6: Loco
, invented by Mr. Rittirsch in Andernach in 2016, reverse the rules of Chinese Chess:
a piece plays "normally" when it captures, but needs a sautoir to play a move which is not a capture.
The Leo becomes a Senõra, the Pao a Faro and the Vao a Loco.
It is Faro on c8 and a Loco on g6.
The Señora is absent.
As well as the equivalent of Mao & Moa, the Saltador, who plays like a Knight,
except that he cannot capture if the two intermediate squares are occupied, and that he cannot play a non-take if the two intermediate squares are empty.
For example, if the Ne7 were a Saltador, it could only play a single move (but could capture a white f5 pawn).
However, if it were moved to a5, then it could play b7, c6 & c4 but could not capture b3.
