Hello. The object of this problem is to use your imagination only. No boards or visual aids allowed! I'll post the problem in text below. It is black to move and force mate in six. Enjoy.
Black Pawns: a7,b7,c7, e5, g7, h7. Kc8, Nc6, Nd3, Rf2, Bh3
White Pawns: a4, b3, c3, g3, h2. Ba3, Ra1, Nd2, Kg1, Rh1, Nh8.
wow I am bad at blindfold chess!
calculating a mate in 6 by itself is tough for most people, so without a board i imagine not many people will be able to come close
I might try tomorrow, but I think I might struggle finding mate in one blindfold :)
Ok, not sure I have the correct position in my head, but is it 1.Rg2+ Kf1 2.Rxd2+ Kg1 3.Rg2+ Kf1 4.Rf2+ Kg1 5.Ne5 threatens unstoppable 6.Nf3 mate?
Wait, there is a black pawn on e5... so maybe Nd4 instead (same idea)... I'm going to set it up and check lol
edit -- nope, not quite right.
At least you tried :P
1....Rg2+ 2. Kf1 Rxd2+ 3. Kg1 Rg2+ 4. Kf1 Ra2+ 5. Kg1 Rxa1 6. Bc1 Rxc1#
Well Done, Caiello. Here's another blindfold mate in six problem:
White to move and force mate in six
White Pawns: a2, b2, c2, d4, f4, g2, h2. Ng3, Nh4, Qh5, Kg1, Rf1, Rf3, Bd3
Black Pawns: a7, b7, c6, d5, f7, f6, h7. Kg7, Ng6, Rg8, Rh8, Qc7, Bd6, Bd7.
Here's a dynamic blindfold mate in three problem. To my knowledge,there are four solutions
White to move and force mate in three
White Pawns: d3, f3, f4, f6, g6. Kb3, Bd4, Ra7
Black Pawns: d5, e5, f5, Ke6
1.Qh6+ Kxh6 2. Nhf5+ Bxf5 3. Nxf5+ Kh5 4. g4+ Kxg4 5. Rg3+ Kh5 6. Be2#
a) 1. f7 exd4 2. f8=B Kf6 3. Ra6#
b) 1. f7 Kf6 2. f8=N exd4 3. Rf7#
c) 1. f7 Kd6 2. f8=Q+ Kc6 3. Qc5#
d) 1. f7 Kd6 2. f8=Q+ Ke6 3. Qe7#
