Thank you for naming the 'Soucie' for my father. I could never beat him at chess so I tired of the challenge quite early in life, I'm afraid. However, I did question him tirelessly about miracles to the point that he called me 'a goddamned philosopher.' So I became one.

it appears that the anonymous posting is correct, that e5 should be empty in the problem. unfortunately my SG8 issue is packed away in a box somewhere and is not accessible, but once it's unpacked again, i'll check to see if it's a typo in the original or just a typo i made when i made the page. thanks for pointing that out, i'll update the diagram when i can.

The movement examples and the solution both imply that the pawn on e5 is an optical illusion.

Just discovered your page. My father, Claude Soucie, would have felt
honored.  Although LOA was undoubtedly his best game, WATCH! is also quite
delightful.  And one of his earliest, a card game that reflected his
lifelong love of humor, BIG FUNERAL, was played by the entire family (7
kids) at his wake!
