  • #1
    Drag the pieces to solve!

    I love daily puzzles, but maybe they could be a little bit harder.. because I have gotten all of them right the first try, and I am pretty rusty.. :)
  • #3

    i'm going to start making them progressively harder as the week goes on. Sunday will be simple simple, Saturday will be GM level :)

    it's just that we have gotten feedback that they are too hard as well. this site has a big mix of skills on it.

    ramping it up and starting over each week is a great idea! coool

    this one was relativley easy, though I always have trouble on the first move!

    so many different combinations!

    " I always have trouble on the first move!"

    Generally, look for the most "forcing" response.

    The biggest problem I had on this one was thinking that it was White to move... After that it was just too easy.

  • #14

    I thought I was the other side again!


    Puzzles are hard to solve when you can't move the pieces. I got it when I found out I was playing for black, though.

    this may be a dumb? but is there a reason that white has to take the rook on d1.. i mean its pretty obvious that a fork will follow .. meaning that by taking the rook white is trading his queen for a rook and therefore a bad move
