What was the opening?
Four Knights Game
Unusual to see such a contrived puzzle on chess.com - any day of the week.
In this one, only the white king and two knights are relevant. I guess the other six pieces are just put on the board to give us something to think about. I count a total of 41 possible moves by the six irrelevant pieces.
But who would even bother to look at any of them? And with the furher clue that it is "mate in one," what else would anyone consider but the one and only move that checks the black king?
This was created by some racist Christian.
why would you have that many knights? O.O lol
I know personally that our Lord is not racist, so neither should His followers be.
Here's essentially the same puzzle, with only one "extra" piece, but that one might at least give us a moment's food for thought - especially if we don't know it is to be "mate in 1;" we ony know the task is to find the "best" move.
What a coincidence - this position has appeared in 3 of my games!
you make a cross --for sunday...
Beside kings, only two knights are sufficient for this puzzle at f6 & d6, even no need of bishop.
Olympic Torch? Or a cross with the dark star...?
It's a miracle! xD
it was the worse puzzle i have seen. Remember me all pawns on the 7th line.
by the look of this game, black has allowed white to promote 6 pawns..
not even worth a comment *delete this in 5 seconds*
Ends in a white cross!
isin't it too easy?
