# A Warped Chess Maze

A chess maze is a kind of chess puzzle where:

1. Only one side moves (and that side usually only has one piece).
2. That side must capture a piece with every move.
3. The goal is to capture all of the opposing pieces.

This chess maze is special, though. White always moves. Whenever White's only piece makes a capture, it turns into the piece it just captured. For example, on 1. Rxg1 a possible next move is 2. Nxh3.

Clarification: If the white piece turns into a pawn, it moves the same way as a white pawn.

A correct solution will have no pieces remaining except a white king on h8.

Good Luck!

I believe this may be the solution:

1. Rxa5
2. Bxd8
3. Bxf6
4. Nxd5
5. Rxd2
6. Bxh6
7. Nxf7
8. Rxa7
9. Bxg1
10. Nxh3
11. Rxh5
12. Bxg6
13. gxh7
14. Rxh8
