    Nice one. The issue is how white can avoid checks. The black queen has to go to its final spot as soon as possible (before the white f-pawn plays).

    1.Nc3 d6
    2.Nd5 Bd7
    3.Nxe7 Ba4
    4.Nd5 Qh4 (no check!)
    5.Nc3 Qb4
    6.f4 Kd7
    7.f5 Kc6
    8.f6 Nxf6
    9.d4 (the knight on c3 bloccks the check) Ne4
    10.Qd3 Nd2 (blocks the diagonal from the black queen to the white king, releasing the white knight)
    11.Nb1 f5

    Oops, the stipulation should state "2 solutions". Well done, Mephisto2 and aginis.
