18 Queens is Possible

EndgameStudier

Here's a game that results in 18 queens, with the rooks on the board as a bonus. This was very Tedious to construct.

Can you do that under 100 moves?

EndgameStudier

Yeah, I can. It takes alot of manuevring to get the queens and kings where they should be. I will re-attempt.

FortunaMajor

Good luck!

The most satisfying game in chess ever

Here U go, 91 moves! I optimized the moves by moving queens to the 2nd rank as soon as possible to the 2nd rank before promoting other pawns. This saved moves because I didn't have to deal with  maneuvering the queens around without checks or pinning other queens to the kings.

You have too much time on your hands.

Who's better here? Has anybody analyzed this game using a computer chess program such as Stockfish?

Also, is 3.Nb6 a novelty? Looks interesting but slightly weakening for white.

Awesome!

obviously, I could promote the pawns to knights instead of queens. It would be way easier.
