I received 20 problems. That's not a lot, even given the fact that the theme is unusual. But I think the tourney is successful because the Octet (i. e. participation of 8 white pieces and pawns in each mating position) is reached in two problems which are awarded by SuperPrize. To give another distinctions, I evaluated a quantity of white pieces and pawns in mating positions (editorial: in comments to problem the record “N+M” means that N white pieces and pawns participate in mating position of 1st phase, M – in 2nd phase).
I distinguish 8 problems total. I thank all participants and wish a health and further creative achievements!
