This is a pretty unusual chess game. Checkmate with the king on move 8. Based on the three moves provided, can you reconstruct the game?

7... a6

  • $\begingroup$ Are we to assume that the moves shown in 5. and 8. are whites and the visible move in 7. is black? $\endgroup$ – gabbo1092 Oct 12 '18 at 12:09

    $\begingroup$ @gabbo1092 Yes, that's correct. I tried to post an entire scoresheet with the unknown moves replaced with question marks, but the page wouldn't let me post it, sayng that it "doesn't conform to quality standards" :S $\endgroup$ – jafe Oct 12 '18 at 12:12

Here is one answer, but it doesn't seem to be completely unique

1. d4 Nc6
2. Bg5 Nxd4
3. Bf6 Nxe2
4. Kxe2 exf6
5. Nd2 Ke7
6. Qe1 Nh6 Note: other moves are possible here
7. Nc4 a6
8. Kd1#
