Queenmate
Compiled by sleepyirv
--*--

Anyone can catch a piece that can only move one square at a time. No, the accomplishment is to corner the mobile queen!

This is a collection of Queenmates. If she can escape to a square only to get forked with the King on the next move, that's not it. If she could run to safety if she wasn't pinned to her mate, that's not it. Only when she's attacked and all the squares she could move to are covered by the opponents' pieces is it a Queenmate.
