    Pity that on my computer there are 2 boards, one immediately below the other.  The pieces on each board are in the same place, and I drag the knight on the top board.  The move is accepted, but then the computer does not make its move.  Shame, because it looks an interesting puzzle!  I will come back to it tomorrow.

    Isn't it mate in 4?

    1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nh6++..Kf8 , 3.Qg8+..Qxg8 , 4.Nf7#

    Is it just my browser, or do yours load mate in 52?

     

    P.S. - To all the people who couldn't get the working puzzle, here it is: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/daily-puzzles/5122012---mate-in-5

    I think 4 ..Qxf7 means it isn't mate and leaves white in trouble. 

    I see  

    1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nd8+..Kh8 3.Qe8+..Ng8 4.Qxg8..Kg8 5.Re8#

    Yeah, I'm having some issues with this one as well. I have two boards and one 1/2 works but after the first move the computer doesn't respond. Puzzle seems relatively simple.

    cool puzzle had to solve it mentally. Figured the checkmate finisihed with the rook. The knights moves were obviously going to be instrumental tosetting up the rook mate.

    I think 4 ..Qxf7 means it isn't mate and leaves white in trouble. 

    I see  

    1.Nf7+..Kg8 , 2.Nd8+..Kh8 3.Qe8+..Ng8 4.Qxg8..Kg8 5.Re8#

    1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nh6+ Kf8 3. Qf7#.

    1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Ng8 4. Nf7#.

    1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Nxe8 4. Rxe8+ Bf8 5. Rxf8#.

    With best defense by black it is a checkmate in five.

    On 1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Ng8, if 4. Qxg8+ then 4...Kxg8 5. Re8+ is not checkmate because of 5...Bf8.  No checkmate.

    Thanks.  I missed the Bf8 block which extends mine to mate in 6.

    I don't understand your first line.  After 2. Nh6+, black would play Kh8 not Kf8.

    Your last line looks right:

    1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nd8+ Kh8 3. Qe8+ Nxe8 4. Rxe8+ Bf8 5. Rxf8#.
