So, the previous one  was an 84 move one, eh. Well, this one is one better. White has got 4 knights (4*3=12 points) against Black's queen (worth 9 points). Obviously this is winning for White and he can force checkmate in 85 moves, avoiding perpetual checks, stalemate traps, as well as the exchange of the queen for two knights during which the remaining two knights cannot force mate.

Here is the 85 move mate:
















Well, 85 is only 1 better than 84, ain't it? The next one will be excatly 100 moves. Anyway, enjoy yourself watching all these mates!
