It's all about the queen !

Usually we try to beat our opponents when we play a game of chess, but in Helpmate problems we actually try to help them achieve mate.

In this position Black moves first to help White checkmate in the next move.   Solution

      Positions        Solutions

And of course we dream of making a classic queen sacrifice
