    The position is after Black's 12th move. How did the game go?

    White promotes 2 bishops, which are captured without ever moving.

    play through the game I posted, and everything will become clear to you too. It was clearly said that it was a proof game, in this case: find the (only possible) series of moves starting from a new game position that could lead to the given position after black's 12th move
