In chapter 8 of Majestic Chess, you have the position 8/8/8/3BB3/8/8/5q2/8 b - - 0 1 (White Bishops on d5 and e5 and Black Queen on f2). You are to add two kings so that White can checkmate Black in one move.
Originally posted by DroopyPawnThe best I could come up with is white king on f6 (in check), black king on h8, then moving the white king to g6. But that's mate in two, not one.
Sorry I'm late. I don't know how the b got at the end of my FEN. It should be White's move and White should be able to mate in 1. We have to add the two Kings to the position above to make this possible. I worked on it for a while. Couldn't come up with anything.

Thats' the one I came up too, Nordlys (or with a white King on h6).
I was afraid that you meant white was to move. This makes it VERY hard. Or is Majestic chess a different game?
Maybe you should post your question in "posers and puzzles"? There should be more people interested in puzzles like this,
Besides, the help forum is supposed to be for technical questions about the site, this is probably why someone "helped" with the fen.

But while we're at it, how DO you post a board diagram like the one above? I haven't seen any instructions posted. (Didn't really look either.)
