# Prove It!

Prove... that this position cannot be reached from any set of moves.

It's actually not so easy.

The first person to do so will get 10 cheers, if their argument is completely valid.

Here's the position:

Proof: This position is actually legal, the pawns moved there from the other side of the board.

Prince_Usa's Solution:

ROUND 2: Prove that this position CAN be reached from any set of moves.

it cant be reached cuz white needs to move a pawn to let out his queen

yes

It can't be like this

It does say set of moves so that does mean a few moves maybe right but idk not completely sure

this breaks the laws of chess

What if White's queen could come out another way?

it could be a promoted pawn, but there are already 8 pawns on the board

How? It does not have the power of the kinght.

Qd0 then go around and capture the pieces

there is no 0 on the board.

THE BOARD IS FLIPPED

ALL THE PAWNS MOVED

Everything moved

its the theoof11

This is chess, there is no imagation

White and black moved all their pawns and all their pieces.
