The quick composing tourney asks for direct twomovers (#2) and helpmate twomovers (h#2) with hurdle colour changing lions (also known as Andernach lions).
Lion: can move to squares in queen directions if there is exactly one piece of either colour between the
departure and arrival square; that piece is called the hurdle.
Rook-lion: acts like a lion on rook lines.
Bishop-lion: acts like a lion on bishop lines.
Hurdle colour changing lion: if a hurdle colour changing lion moves over a hurdle that is not a king, the colour of the hurdle is changed.
Any number of hurdle colour changing lions, rook-lions and bishop-lions may be used, but no other fairy elements (in particular no lions that are not hurdle colour changing).
Twins and/or multiple solutions are allowed. Zero-positions are not allowed.
Important note: Popeye currently doesn't allow pawns to promote into hurdle colour changing lions.
