    Tricky one!  I was trying every position in which I could force the king to move out....took a while before I thought to castle.  Supposedly though the only way you're about to get this setup is if you played both sides...or just put down the pieces for a puzzle.  But it was a very fun puzzle nonetheless :)

    Have to say, I didn't get the solutiion as I did not and would never have assumed that a game could reach this point without the castling pieces having been moved-particularly since white's king is completely unprotected.  Unrealistic and a waste of time

    Castling is always allowed in a puzzle, unless something in the position indicates there is no way the player can castle, (like: the king must have moved before etc.) This is not the case here.
    Please don't call the puzzle stupid if you don't understand it yourself

    I should have remembered this kind of "think outside the box" puzzle.  The box for me is: at this point in a real game castleing is not going to be an option

    I always leave my king and rook in their original positions to retain the option for this mating attack.
