Heh... I felt the complete opposite.

I, like Murrth, felt the first move was the absolute easiest.  My hardest decision was to bypass the chance to fork the King and Queen on move 3 (and capture the Queen on move 4)  Knowing it was "mate in 4" saved me from that error.  That MIGHT have given me an eventual win, but it would be no sure thing.

The second move was pretty easy; every move had to be a check - black had too many ready moves that would spoil anything I would try to set up with a non-checking second move.  For instance:
1. Qh6+  Ke8
2. Qg7?   d5   .........  and anything white was planning is ruined.

A good puzzle.  No fancy sacrifices, just good piece movement and teamwork.
