Helpmates are, like, so last season. Here's the new thing: Help-draws! The following is a neat little puzzle I made where both players actively try to draw as quickly as possible.
Note: For obvious reasons, one player can't just "offer" a draw. That would be highly unfun.
EDIT:Please ignore the FEN strip. Just assume that both sides have a passed pawn ready to promote in one.
both players could repeat the same moves 3 times
Correction: The fastest way to draw.
The other player offers a draw? lol
Did you compare the FEN string of your position with that of the OP's? They are not the same. Nice try, though.
cobra->Oops. I was too lazy to "rotate" the board manually. Just assume that white is going down the board, and the turn player is going up the board.
In other words, both players could promote on the next turn.
Lopsidation-> yeah, you got it. My answer included a check and an underpromotion, but the principle is the same.
I see... smart
