Sure, but what elements ? that is the question !

> in the 13.0 mover, both cross-captures are of promoted pieces;

This is not enough, as shown in the above "minimal" game, composed in 2
minutes :

24 demi-coups. 14 + 14

Solution 1 (position 5)
1.Ph2-h4 Pa7-a5 2.Ph4-h5 Pa5-a4 3.Ph5-h6 Pa4-a3
4.Ph6xg7 Ph7-h5 5.Pe2-e4 Ph5-h4 6.Pe4-e5 Th8-h5
7.Pe5-e6 Cg8-h6 8.Pg7-g8=C Ph4-h3 9.Cg8-f6 Pe7xf6
10.Pe6-e7 Ph3-h2 11.Pe7xd8=C Ff8-d6 12.Cd8-e6 Pf7xe6

La r‚solution finit le Wed Jan 16 19:06:39 2008
Temps de r‚solution : 2.64 s.

Perhaps that realizing this thema twice (that is 4 promoted knights by the
same side leadind to 2 cross-captures) would be interesting and new.
