After my previous submission I thought it was perfect, but I wasn't satisfied. Surely there has to be a way to beat it! If only I could just find a faster way to checkmate. Traditionally it was thought that the fastest checkmate was the 2 move fool's mate, but I've never been satisfied with this consensus. So after much contemplation and soul searching I finally found the answer.

I present to you here, the first ever epic 1 move checkmate.


Nach: Okay, although it's not explicit in the rules that you can't setup the board, and it is mentioned in the instruction booklet, I'd say this type of movie violates this rule. If we were to view that rule differently, it's already been obsoleted by "better" "cheating".
