    so the point of checkmate wasnt the purpose this time???


     Nope, but these types of puzzles have ben rare lately.  I usually don't like non-mating puzzles, but that hidden mate if QxQ was worth it.

    Hints for posting in the Daily Puzzle thread:

    1) If you think there is a flaw in the puzzle, you simply don't understand it completely.


    Riiiiiiiiiight . . . like the times when the puzzle's busted and nothing will move. Totally the user's fault.


     Hey, I give Azukikuru a thousand bonus points for not posting "First."  He obviously saw all of the repetitious comments yesterday, and the numerous posters who didn't take the time to analyze the puzz.  I missed an obvious move, but I had the humility to ask, received a number of replies, yet a lot of other people never bothered to look at the answer, because the same question kept getting re-asked.  I'm grateful for any post that's not "easy" or "first" -- or "stupid puzzle."

    Thought provoking & better than some recent (& trickier) ones because of no inexplicable/daft  moves that you sometimes see. Only had 1 incorrect move on the board this time-think I must be improving!

    I somehow accidently made the right move trying to make the right move for 2)Qg3+ (I accidently dropped the queen on that square , then didn't realise it and tried to make that same move again)

    Nice puzzle though.

    the puzzle is wrong. the black queen cud hv killed the white queen instead of moving the frog. cheap puzzle.

    Sometimes, when I'm stumped, I use the accidently dropped technique also.
