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).

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 one

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#. :-)
