This column ideally follows the one in EteroScacco of ten years ago and its main task is to propose retroanalysis problems of chess variants more normally used for playing or in any case, not much used in retro problems. This first issue has a small solving contest of two fairy originals of mine. Both are SPGs, the first one using Circe, the second sentinel chess. Prizes are warm congratulations from all the editors! Software programs exist that can solve them, but of course you're not going to use them, are you?
