Sometimes you've got to break the rules

White to play and mate in two moves (using Basterot rules)

I'd never heard this story told quite this way.  The sick thing is that I solved all three problems in about a minute (I'd seen the first Kubbel problem before).

Are "fairy chess" problems of any use to the practical player?  Anything that encourages leaps of imagination can't be all bad!
