Mixtour



Blue to move. How can Blue counter the double threat by White d3:3-d5 (moving 3 pieces from d3 to d5) and d3:4-e4 (moving 4 pieces to e4)?

Short Mixtour Rules:
The height of the target tower determines the exact move length, straight orthogonally or diagonally, only through empty spaces, you may move opponent pieces and split towers at will; you win with your own piece on top of a 5-tower. Full Mixtour Rules

Spoiler (click to reveal)

Solution


The solution seems unusual, but is typical for Mixtour: d5:2-e4. Both targets disappearing.

Uh, you're right, there should be a white piece or tower on b4. something in the background to prevent the split on d3.

EDIT: I updated the images above, sorry.
