Black played Qxe4 but Ne2 Mate looks good.

I thought for a moment with all the diagrams I had messed up the move order.
You are into retro problems so I suspect the next genre is to play proof games
where you have to prove the original position was from a Fischer Random
game and you then have to show the original start position.
Or are there already already Fischer Chess retro's out there?
(have a feeling I'm going to regret asking this).

Ah that's what was tugging at me. The old Heinzkat post.
I was also thinking that some of the classic problems could be
re-invented using the 960 set ups.
For instance Loyd's famous stalemate in 10 moves.
Now has to found (and possibly beaten) on all the 960 positions.
Why not claim one.
And this famous one from the normal set up.

I'm 99% sure only 1 mate in 3 from 150.
I set up the postion on Fritz and moved the King along the 4th rank
and gave it 30 seconds. (these computers have some uses).
If there is a mate in 3 on the 5th+ ranks I'm sunk.
I pulled 150 it at random 120, 130, 140 have no mates or multi mates.
Your up on problem rights and wrongs.
