Those are irrelevant in this case, Jacques-refer to Haueke's problems as well. This is the task of White choosing where the Black king goes-in the dual free cases we are exploring all squares must be covered of course
But with mine empty squares are needless to bring up in this little niche-in this case-of giving all available mates to a single piece.

sorry, at least not at all what I intend to do.

If fairy pieces are allowed, the task is easy.
(= 2+1 )
Mate in 1
60 squaares (all except a1, b3, c2, d3)
Not: 1.c:b3+ K:a1!
(an Ubi essentially is a fairy piece that can moves as if it could make any number of consecutive knight moves, but it can't move on after a capture)
(= 2+2 )
Mate in 1

(16) to (22)

@Jacques: These are simply two different tasks (mate sK on
each legal field/mate on choses fields) and it surely make
sense to start with the latter anyway, since it is easier.
With the gained knowledge, one can start then with the former.
@Siegfried: See "other" thread linked here by Rewan ;-)
@Rewan: Good job. Here is a sketch with promoted material
that might be reduced to beat 8:
(= 10+15 )
|(26) Posted by Jacques Rotenberg [Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020 15:13]|
btw it seems easy to bring this to 11...
|(27) Posted by Hauke Reddmann [Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020 18:13]|
Correct, Jacques :-) I also added a few superfluous figures
such that the bK can only stand on these 11 fields.
(= 11+21 )
|(28) Posted by Jacques Rotenberg [Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020 19:27]|
nice ! seems a maximum with one rook

Now the King. Cf. my sensational :-) Problem-Forum #521 with some
elaborate dual-avoidance trickery, so the following is
just a first obvious try with 4 batteries, more might
be possible. Again, some "filler" for Jacques :-)
(= 10+9 )
|(30) Posted by Rewan Demontay (Real Name: James Malcom) [Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020 21:58]|
For a bishop, at least 8 can be done. For Jacques, once more as well, all non-BK squares are filled in. :)
(= 12+17 )
|(31) Posted by Hauke Reddmann [Wednesday, Nov 11, 2020 00:06]|
Rewan, you are guilty that I don't get any sleep tonight :-)
(And I'm too tired to check it thoroughly. In any case, 10 still might be possible.)
(= 12+18 )
|(32) Posted by Jacques Rotenberg [Wednesday, Nov 11, 2020 03:17]|
5 for king
(= 13+3 )
Kg8 : Kb5#
Kf7 : Kd3#
Ke6 : Kd4#
Ke2 : Kd5#
Kf1 : Kb3#
|(33) Posted by Hauke Reddmann [Wednesday, Nov 11, 2020 09:16]|
I *knew* it :-) (But there are mating duals with the BB. One is easily eliminated
with Ba8->b7,+sBa8, but alas, the board is too small for the other :-( (On a 9*9,
obviously 6 K # are possible with the same idea, so let's go all the way...)
|(34) Posted by Hauke Reddmann [Wednesday, Nov 11, 2020 23:57]|
(= 5+19 )
Knew I still could up the ante a bit - and I get no sleep again :-) 13 Q# (no filler)
|(35) Posted by Jacques Rotenberg [Thursday, Nov 12, 2020 07:27]|
wonderful Hauke !! and so light!,
A big step !
Anyhow, the fact there is no solution with the king on a4 or d1 is a problem
5 for the king :
(= 11+5 )
anyhow, here also, the fact there is no mate if the black king is on d1 is a problem (for the other empty squares it is easy to find something to do)
it is all the difference between a succession of twins and a short sentence " wherever the black king is he is mated in one"
In fact, if you refer to the title of this thread "- without being on the board -" you can see easily that if you need to show the places he is, there is something "wrong"

Good work, Jacques, I already had a hunch the horizontal battery
could be utilized.
As I already said, I simply count the distinction "valid even
in Kriegsspiel" and "just a construction" as two different tasks,
the former earning a bit more mojo :-) Feel free to edit my
position even if it might cost one or two mates.

Here are two improved (for Jacques' needs :-) version of S8 and P6 by "Gelegenheitspatzer".
