Here is a game I've recently played with my 6-year-old nephew. I am the black pieces.
My last move was Bxf3.
I emphasize on this because of those of you who are thinking about 50 move rule :)
As you can see, I have an unstoppable mate (Qg2#).
It's white's move. My nephew asked me a question. I gave an answer. And then he saved the game.
- What was his question?
- What was my answer?
- How did he manage to avoid mate?
Here is the FEN string of the game:
8/kPR5/ppB1p3/3p4/1p5P/5bPq/5P2/6K1 w - - 0 1
The question was about the rules of the game.
Apparently, I had to take the accept back
because even though
Gareth McCaughan found the move to save the white's game, the questions are not yet correct.
Here are some more hints.
I am around my thirties and yes, we played this game recently. Not hundreds of years ago.
I did not try to make an exception for my nephew. My aim was to win the game.
The question he asked was seemingly a very simple question about the current rules of the game.
Also, him being 6-year-old is slightly relevant because children are able to think outside the box more than adults intuitively.
