The program for playing Progressive Chess

In Progressive Chess, rather than just making one move per turn, players play progressively longer series of moves. We are designing a program for playing this game. This is just a very short demo.

In the following diagram, White to move checkmates in 7 moves. The program's solution is indicated.


In the final position the Black King is checkmated due to the double check by White's Knight and Bishop. Check is allowed only on the last move of the sequence. It was thus important to cover the long diagonal with the Knight and to promote the e-pawn into a Rook, in order to avoid premature checks.
