    A game ends with 5...Rh1# [no capture]. Give the full gamescore.

    After 20 minutes, I can see mate in 6, but I can't get 5. Kudos to those of you who can.

    Picks up sub machine gun and 3,000 round of ammo and goes in search of SG to "sort him out".

    I tried lines including everything from en passant to white's castling and still couldn't get it...

    Not seen or heard of this one.

    Adam we don't need to find him, we set him a trap to lure him out.

    Tell him someone has carved an unsovlable retro-grade analysis problem
    on Mount Rushmore. He will be bound to go there, he cannot resist.

    Wait in the trees with a sniper rifle.
    Look for the guy with bright red hair, an Hawian flower shirt, baggy shorts and
    wearing socks with Jesus sandals.

    Don't you mean 0-1 Black.

    It's 5...Rh1 mate.

    Look, you had better let me do the shooting.
    You will only shoot yourself in the foot.

    Not when you let Black start for once

    You can drive the getaway car, I don't want you anywhere near the rifle.

    (and I've solved it.)

    Ok, this was my first attempt at something like this. And I failed. How do you get two pawns, a bishop, a Knight and a Rook out the way for black to finish on h1 (under-promoted pawn or Rook) without final capture in 5 moves? Once enough people have solved, please message me the answer?

    This one isn't easy at all, maybe you should try first the other one first (Nxf8)

    one important thing that can help you : in this kind of problem, there's only an unique game that leads to the solution. that means it cannot be "d4 or d3 to get the c1 bishop out" it's either d3 or d4 and the other move doesn't work. Same goes for move order.

    And it's an exercise of logic more than chess in my opinion.
    (one small hint) You're right in your approach : it's difficult to get the bishop, knight and rook out AND that none of those pieces can get back to their original square to parry the mate...especially the rook is hard to get out of the way...

    It's no good, I never was any good at these bloody things. I am the same in my car, I can't reverse to save my life.
