    Which way around is the board?! Perhaps there's a solution for all 4 possible orientations...

    Who let Mephisto through the door, I'll have to try and find something harder if you're sticking around

    Ng2 is indeed correct, good call.

    Maybe we should have a thread on this site where users try to compile their own problems, has this ever been attempted?

    I don't think so, but it's a nice idea.
    I suppose we can make it as follows: decide the material involved on both sides, the number of moves /mate in 2, mate in 3 or something more challenging/ and start proposing possible "implementations". Voting may be a good way of doing things. It may be fun: the first ever collective RHP chess puzzle )

    That's a good idea having a piece restriction then leave it up to the composer to say how many moves to mate in. The more there are, the more chance of refutation. I reckon it's a goer, we'll see if there's any more interest in it......
