    The YOUTUBE video seems to contain some really odd looking moves. It seems as though both players are afraid to capture any enemy pieces. Does anyone else agree with me?

    The thing with finding the checkmates is connecting the dots (pieces) together. Once u work out more of what ur pieces can do and how u can use them together to create a mate there is no limit to how many checkmating positions u can come up with....Cool

    Stalemate is a drawn position where the the king cannot move from its square, because if it does it gets placed in check by the opposing king, this is of course is illegal to put urself in check so its a draw....Cool

    Is nice to see the final part, but what it keeps us struggling is when we are in the middle of the game trying to define the game. But anyways is a useful picture.
