ab: Summary: One of Martin Gardner’s most famous columns introduced John
Conway’s Game of Life. The inverse problem, finding a previous
generation in the Game of Life given some extra constraints, was
introduced a few years ago and is referred to as Retrolife. In this
paper the author presents a puzzle played on a chessboard that is
isomorphic to a variation of Retrolife.
