Possible Future Puzzles
Compiled by 1. h4
--*--

These are games that could be considered for the daily puzzles here at ChessGames. I tried to choose games that are little-known and, of course, have never been a puzzle before already.

In parentheses are the days that the game could be shown (a hint as to its difficulty, which, btw, are just my opinions). The hardest are at the top, the easiest at the bottom.

For more check out Game Collection: Daily Puzzle Candidates (sorry <YouRang>, I didn't know you already had a similar collection before I started this one!)
