Please Help me!!
Here is a game I got mated by Cheshire Cat. I usually resign before the death blow, but I missed this move playing fast.
The trick is to make it so you attack the king and he's got no where to go. Not the Next Move... You need to attack the King and have no where for the king to go and no way to kill your attacking pieces.
You can also search through the public games and find games to view how the game is played.
Good luck, have fun!
