Board Geometry #1
(15 questions)

There are only three rules for this exercise. First, and most importantly… NO BOARDS or chess visual aids! Second, when entering the move, you will simply denote moves by short algebraic (e.g., e4, c5, Nf3 etc.). If there is a piece capture, you will use a small "x" instead of any other symbol. Third and last, do not include any annotation symbols such as !! or !? after your entry or it will be counted as incorrect. There is no time limit for this exercise. Enjoy!
