    A game ends with 5.c4-d6#. Give the full gamescore.

    Others can try and solve as well.

    hmmm doesn't look very academic !
    Normally there should be only one solution, here there seems to be several!
    for example 1.Nf3 h6 2.Ng1 e6 3. Na3 c6 4.Nb5 Ne7 5.Nd6 mate..

    And swissgambit doesn't create the problems, they're made by expert composers (pretty hard to do i guess)

    I agree, here is another example

    1.Nc3 e6 2.Nb5 Ne7 3.Na3 c5 4.Nc4 Nc6 (or Rg8 ...) 5.Nd6#

    All you have done Adram is just rile him.
    Now he will come back in a right huff.

    SG does do a fair bit of composing think he has posted some
    of his own creations here. He certainly has in his Problemists Club forum.

    Never thought of multiple solutions.

    Most of them are found by computer search, actually.
