This is another Solitaire Chess puzzle like this earlier puzzle.


  1. Pieces move as in regular chess
  2. Every move must be a capture
  3. When there is only 1 piece left, you win.

One solution is:

Nxd2 Bxc2 Rxd3 Rxd2 Rxc2 Nxc2 Nxa1

As images:


Much the same as Tryth - I think this is essentially the only solution.

Nd2 Rd3 Rd2 Rc2 Bc2 Nc2 Na1

which I'm just posting to try making a (slightly jumpy) gif...

    $\begingroup$ +1 cool gif. yeah, i tried to create this puzzle with just 1 basic solution (except for a few move order differences) since the 1st Solitaire Chess puzzle had so many different solutions. $\endgroup$ – JLee Mar 31 '15 at 21:51
