The first move, or ?key,? of a conventional chess problem isalmost never a capture. But convention is turned on its head inthis collection of 200 original problems in which every move of thewhite pieces requires the capture of a black piece! The advantagesare several: for one thing, jaded problem fans are sure toappreciate the totally fresh approach. For another, unliketraditional problems, which require a rarefied and artificial typeof thinking, these ?take and mate? problems demand the same thoughtprocesses that players use in over-the-board play. Arranged inorder of difficulty and coupled with a built-in scoring system,they offer a unique way for players at all levels to sharpen theirtactical skills.
