    You mean on d8. Which makes the answer 1. Qa3#

    Going back to #315: I see (not only) Qa3# (but also d8=Q# or Qg5#)

    Whereas with #325: I see only mates in two...


     

    Edit: Thanks LoekBergman, good points. Consequently readers, do not read my (errata).

    I agree about #325, but not about #315.

    Qg5 is met by Qxcg5 and the pawn can not move as it is pinned.

    You are right(both you and funksteph) I've put the rook in the wrong position ! lol

    The correct one is on b3, so the position is like below...

     A lot of queens, but only one checkmate in oneSmile

    Thanks apostolis1 for the correction and for your proposals in general.

    So for #328 (if you say that the rook is on b3, from white pov, the board is up side down), I see only one: Ke5#

    For #329, imo a lot easier: Qg8#

    Thanks to funksteph for pointing out that the board is upside down:

    That shows that there are two mates possible in #329, namely Qg8# or Qb1#. :-)
