The Multiple Queens Games!

  • #1

    I thought it would be interesting to post games where there are multiple pawn promotions on the board. Here I have a few interesting Queen mayhem games:

    OK, now a bonus question: what is the minimum number of moves needed to checkmate the opponent's King in a King and two Queens vs King endgame, with only the mentioned pieces on the board, in a position best for the lone King?

    P.S. I don't know the answer to this one, but if you know, go ahead!

    Here's another one I found:


    If you find any similar game, please post it here. There don't have to be multiple pawn promotions, it's enough that one side has more than one queen in total throughout the game!

    In case anybody didn't notice, I will post the question asked earlier in the topic: what's the minimum number of moves for checkmate in a King and two Queens versus King endgame, assuming the side with two Queens is in the worst possible position?

    I think the answer is 4, as shown in this game below. Most other placements lead to mates in 3 or 2. The interesting thing is, if you put the white king on g2 instead of h1, it becomes a mate in 3!
