3. Chamber of Strategy

The puzzle around the Chamber of Strategy involves an unfinished chess game that you must win. Your goal is to checkmate the opponent. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Move 1 (White): Move the white queen from A6 to H6 and take the pawn on H6. This puts the black king on H8 in check.
  2. Move 1 (Opponent): The black king on H8 has only one escape option and moves to G8.
  3. Move 2 (White): Take the pawn on G7 with your white queen on H6. That is checkmate.

The designations such as A6, H6, etc., refer to the usual numbering of a traditional chessboard, where the rows are numbered from 1 to 8 and the columns from A to H. More details about the puzzle can be found in this guide.
