Below is 1st Com. in the Champagne Tourney for “long travel” problems, Kobe 2012, showing a one man round trip.  I expect there are longer examples of one man SPGs.

Best wishes,

Hi friends, 

This is probably not a new matter, but I ask it anyway.

Have the "one man" records been explored? I mean, PGs where one or both sides
move just one piece.

Far away to pretend to be a record, I show an example (surely already done),

One side "one man"

12.0 moves   C+

1. Pf2-f4   Cg8-f6     2. Pf4-f5   Cf6-d5     3. Pf5-f6   Cd5-b4    
4. Pf6xe7   Pf7-f5     5. Pe7xf8=F Pf5-f4     6. Ff8-c5   Dd8-h4    
7. Fc5-f2   Dh4-h3     8. Ff2xa7   0-0        9. Fa7-c5   Ta8-a3    
10. Fc5xf8   Ta3-f3    11. Ff8-c5   Pd7-d6    12. Fc5-f2   Tf3xf2    

Two sided "one man"

7.0 moves   C+

1. Pf2-f4   Pa7-a5     2. Pf4-f5   Pa5-a4     3. Pf5-f6   Pa4-a3    
4. Pf6xg7   Pa3xb2     5. Pg7xf8=F Pb2xa1=F   6. Ff8xe7   Fa1-g7    
7. Fe7-f8   Fg7xf8 

There are different tasks, lenght record, Homebase, thematic touches (Pronkin, Donati, etc).
