    A game ends with 6.gxf8=N#. Give the full gamescore.

    I really hate trying to reconstruct games, but every now and then take a wee look at some of the puzzles when I have no games to move in and there are not too many moves to calculate. Hurts my brain otherwise lol

    Bluddy hell that was difficult for us mere mortals. People who pose these difficult puzzles should be shot if they do not warn us first that the moves are totally different from anything we are likely to ever consider! Either that or they should give the first moves as well.

    Now if only I could find such a co-operative opponent willing to play a game like that 😛

    I have to confess it was not solved but remembered
    from a time when I was shown it before.
    I knew the final postion I just had to get there.

    BTW SG has 100's of these tucked up his sleeve.

    Think we can get him banned under TOS for posting things
    that will drive us all completely insane.

    From TOS:

    Post, email or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;

    I reckon the "otherwise objectionable" bit should do it, although I'd be willing to bet we could argue it is harmful.

    Either that or we could tie his sleeves really tight so he can't bring any more out!

    He would only then shake them out of his trousers or
    pull them out of his pockets. We are doomed.

    Doomed I tells ya.

    The next one will probably look something like this:


    White to mate in 116 moves without moving a Knight!

    Why do I keep getting at tons of solutions that require 6 moves for white but also 6 for black? 😛
    Edit: solved - finally...

    I do not wish to see anything that appears out of SG's trousers. 😳
