I just realized, that the subject line of Juha's posting contained
an additional constraint: "kings to original places", so an extra
half move is needed:

1.a2-a4 h7-h5 2.a4-a5 h5-h4 3.a5-a6 b7xa6 4.Ra1xa6 h4-h3
5.g2xh3 Rh8xh3 6.Ra6xa7 Bc8-a6 7.Ra7xa6 Rh3xh2 8.Bf1-h3 Rh2xh3
9.Ra6-h6 Rh3-a3 10.b2xa3 g7xh6 11.Rh1xh6 Ra8xa3 12.Ng1-h3 Ra3xh3
13.Bc1-a3 Rh3xa3 14.Rh6-h8 Ra3-a1 15.Rh8xg8 Ra1xb1 16.Qd1xb1 Qd8-c8
17.Rg8xf8+ Ke8xf8 18.Qb1xb8 Qc8-e8 19.Qb8xe8+ Kf8xe8
