On the third move at puzzle 3, i slipped with the mouse making a move that i didn't want to make. Suprisingly, that was  the right move!

The idea in no.3 is similar to a puzzle in a book named " Endgame Magic" by a Russian author. Its sad that someone borrowed it and was never returned.

"In 2. Geomitrick, why doesn't black play 3... h6. That would nullify the check mate threat. I think the best reply to that is 4. Bg2 Qa6 and now the fork at the end is no longer possible."

I think you meant "4. Bg7" not "4. Bg2" and good thought, but after 3...h6 White simply plays 4.Be5, threatening 5.Bf4#, the same sort of mate. Plus, after 3...h6 4.Be5, Black has no way to stop the bishop directly, and so the only way to avoid immediate mate is 4...Qxc1 which leads to the skewer 5.Bf4+.

"in 2 doesn't 2:Nf3 also win?"

No, this only draws. After 2.Nf3 a1=Q, the best White has is 3.Bxd4+ leading to a drawn king and pawn endgame.

The point of 2.Ne2 (as the puzzle shows) is to play 3.Nc1 in response to 2...a1=Q.  You can't get to c1 from f3.  The point of Nc1 is to threaten Bg5 mate which forces either Qxc1 leading to the skewer Bg5+ or Qa5 (to protect the g5 square) leading to the line shown in the solution.

Fantasy of chess!

All problems were great! Thanks. In problem 2, I would give 3.Nc1 three exclamation points if possible.  I thought I was only going to get a draw with 3.Bxd4+ where Black can stop the rook pawn just in time.
