Shortly I will post their solutions or the refutation as it is easy to err on such puzzles. Spartan pieces are labeled and move as follows: h = Hoplite - moves 1 square diagonally and captures 1 forward L = Lieutenant - leaps 1 or 2 squares diagonally, moves (no capture) 1 square horizontally C = Captain - leaps 1 or 2 squares orthogonally G = General - moves like a rook or King W = Warlord - moves like a Knight or a Bishop K = Spartan King - move exactly like an orthodox King Puzzle #1 Black (Spartan) to move and mate in 3 Puzzle #2 Black (Spartan) to move and mate in 4 Puzzle #3 White (Persian) to move and mate in 2 Post your solution, comment or critique. If you create a Spartan chess puzzle please post it and I will be glad to post it to the official Spartan Chess website crediting you as its author.
