Is it possible to set up a legal chess position with all 32 pieces on the board, where there can be a string of unbroken captures such that only the kings are on the board when it is over?
You can see an attempt I made here. In the resulting position (after 13. .. Qxg4), the puzzle would be solved if not for the fact that white's capture of the rook with the queen was check, which unfortunately forces black to recapture. This means that if we could switch the places of the white (black) queen with the white (black) rook in the starting position, the puzzle would be solved. The problem is that that position is not legal, as the rook has no way of jumping over the pawn chain.
Perhaps this can be done easier with knights capturing everything?
PS. I hope this is an appropriate question here. If not, please let me know what to do to improve it. Also, if you have tag suggestions, please do share.
