# Room Puzzle, containing chess and ciphers. Can someone help? [duplicate]

I Have to force checkmate black king in two moves only its white turn.

Someone also asked this question here like a month ago, but the answer was wrong i tried alot of things but didnt work

• Also note there's a wiki page available listing all the answers. – Jafe May 12 at 11:42
• well, i tried that but it doesnt work, and the sign saying T=19 says "Here is the last five digit of the code but there are 4 openings, someone helped me at the cipher: a0z25 and it matches with T=19 maybe the openings you said could be wrong? idk – iSpy Errors May 12 at 11:42
• We shouldn't publish the answers here either, then. – Jafe May 12 at 11:46
• @Jafe i just needed help tried alot but doesnt work, im not like the people who just skip all the rooms i cant solve this room. – iSpy Errors May 12 at 11:47
• I understand, but this really is not the right forum I'm afraid. We have a policy about not allowing questions on ongoing competitions, and if the puzzle's publisher wants the codes to stay secret that's all the more reason to close this question as well as Chess-based escape room, which I hadn't realised before was from an external source. – Jafe May 12 at 11:50

The mate in two:

Rg8 Kxg8
Qg7

So the vignere key is:

Rookgeightqueengseven

Which decodes the ciphertext to:

First and third digits are equal

The openings are:

Amar opening, Queen's pawn opening, Englund gambit, Barnes opening

Which probably means:

if T = 19 then A = 0, Q = 16, E = 4 and B = 1

Combining this with the decrypted text would lead me to believe the code is:

101641

• oh also the sign that says T = 19 also says here are the first five digits but when we encode it, it gave only 4 digits so the openings could be wrong, if we could just find an opening that matches and also starts with 2 digit words (according to A0z25) maybe it would work cause itd give us 5 digits, but its just a theory idk alot about it – iSpy Errors May 12 at 12:19
• could it be latvian gambit? – iSpy Errors May 12 at 12:21
• Maybe 1. d4 d5 represents a Queen's pawn opening. You can sub in a Q to get a six-digit code. – SQLnoob May 12 at 12:26
• Thanks ALOT dude the code is 101641, thanks for helping me i was trying to get this done for like 4 hours from now on – iSpy Errors May 12 at 12:29
