Breakin, Enterin & Attackin by Gypsy & Emilio
Compiled by fredthebear

Attacks against typical and a-typical castling setups -- sneaks and breaks into King's homes, palaces, and/or redoubts.

When were window panes invented? It seems the Romans had this knowledge before the Dark Ages. So when was the first rock thrown through a window pane? Probably about as soon as some commoner thought he could get away with it.

Fredthebear copied this collection of 80 games from Gypsy. Thank you Gypsy! FTB has filled in some game labels and re-arranged the order.

Emilio's attacking games are being added. FTB will provide game labels.
