Queenside Attacks, Checkmates and Resignations
Compiled by fredthebear

Whatever it takes as long as it's legal and ethical.

FTB has a liberal interpretation of "queenside." The game does not have to start or finish there (but does so in most cases), as long as some sort of interesting action occurs from a-d that shapes the outcome.
