before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: white rook does or doesn’t move but keeps guarding pawn\ double check
south knight moves most northwest \ black queen captures pawn , to mate with bishop double check after black-south-knight moves least northeast [or to mate with bishop\ rook\ queen mate], white's ndsix starts

Shown is a Stocchi block on d5 in set and solution with changed mates. In the set we have 1.. Qxd5, N7xd5, N3xd5 2. Rh4#, Nc6#, Nd7#. The key sacrifices a wN on d6 with the threat 2. Rf5#. Now on 1.. Qxd5, N7xd5, N3xd5 2. Rxf3#, Nc4#, Nf7#. It is characteristic for the Stocchi block that all three mates would work if d5 were blocked by a neutral black mass. Side variations are 1.. Kxd5, KxN 2. Qd4#, Rf5#. "A Stocchi-témát tartalmazza három megváltozott mattképpel és jó kulcslépéssel."

János Buglos (* 22.6.1923 in Budapest) Hungarian composer. "János Buglos composes in many genres, but mainly direct mates." For more information see the Hungarian site "Első feladványa 1939-ben jelent meg. Legjelentősebbek a komplex témákra készített kétlépéses feladványai, de igen otthonosan mozog a 'tündér-mesék' világában is. [..]"
