    Black

    White

    Position after White's 15th move. Please send me your solutions.

    I lost count, so I'll have to find some other way of distinguishing these.

    Is it true a8, b8, a7 and h7 are captured 'at home'? I have no idea how to do it properly.

    Answering this question would give a fairly strong hint, so I will leave it up to Jirakon.

    I guess my whole idea to solve this PG is wrong then...

    I have no problem sending someone a message with a hint or answer to their question, but only if they really want it. Sometimes people (including myself) ask for hints that, deep down, they really don't want. After solving a puzzle when given a hint, they usually think that they could have eventually solved it and wish that they weren't given the hint. So I'll answer your question heinzkat, but only if you're absolutely certain you want the answer.
