Really? I suppose it could be, come to think of ir. In fact it looks more so the longer I think about it. What say you, composer?

It might not be, 

 

Heh "obviously White is better". 

 

But since this is "strange puzzles" (which are funny but i get tired of them) there's a whole bunch of these. It's the lack of Bishops freaking us out. I'm dead tired so I can't see the precise moves to do it, but it involves knights wandering in and eating bishops then wandering back out.

Black has lost 2 pieces - the d-pawn and the f8 bishop.

As the f8 bishop is a black-squared bishop (and must have been taken on f8 in any case), the black piece that was taken by the white pawn on b3 must have been the d-pawn or a piece it was promoted to.

Could this have happened?

White has lost 2 pieces - the c1 bishop and the f1 bishop.

The f1 bishop must've been taken on f1, so the Black d-pawn could only have taken 1 piece at most.

This means that the Black d-pawn could only have got to b3 if it was promoted.

This is not possible with only 1 capture due to the white pawns on c2 and e2 - 2 captures would have been needed to get past White's d-pawn and to a promotion square.

Therefore the position is illegal.

Nice composition!

All correct. Nice reasoning! (That's my reasoning too)
