Last night in class we have started to work on this week's puzzle, since it is something new and requires quite an amount of work to finish it. What you have is a finished game from beginning to end, presented to you by 8 diagrams. Above is the first diagram after 5 moves. Each diagram shows all pieces after a sequence of moves and comparing it with the diagram before, should give you clues on what pieces have moved. Your task:
a) Guess all the moves made in the game in the correct order

For each group of moves correctly identified and reaching the position required for each diagram, you get 5 points. Given the fact we have 8 diagrams in total, the maximum number of points you can gain is 40. If you need a copy of the lesson, please email me!
The answers will be published next week together with puzzle #69.

Puzzle #67 solution:
John has put together another complete answer. Please read it and learn!
a) Black's positives:
1. Ba8 shooting a laser beam down on the White King
2. Nd3 is killing, on the dominating d3. It is EASILY worth a Rook!
3. Rg8 sclicing the g-file off. Kh1 can't get out
4. Qe6 supporting the attack and ready to launch an attack. Black's plan is to break the a8-h1 diagonal open to so Ba8 and Rg8 can work together. Meanwhile, Nd3 will smother it's way into White's territory making White defend. Then the final blow will be when Qe6 come in, with a crushing attack
Black's negatives:
1. His King is not THAT safe so Black will have to make sure White doesn't get to check his King and doesn't gain counter-play. Although this will be fairly easy to take care of
2. Black only other little negative is being down a pawn, but Black's attack is more than enough for it
White's positives
1. Is up a pawn but it is VERY hard for him to get a little chance for him to use it
2. Putting pressure on the Black pieces. i.e.: f3 putting pressure on e4, Be2 and Qc2 putting pressure on Nd3. But Black's crushing attack can too easily out-weigh this
White's plan: Try to exchange pieces (Even if this counts sacrificing an exchange) and get his King out of a jumbled mess, by re-organizing his pieces to try to help take a better defensive position or a good stand.
White's negatives:
1. Kh1 is stuck and is forced to look into the killing eye of Ba8
2. His Qc2, Be2, Rf1, and Ne3 are all jumbled up, practically doing nothing
b) See solution:

But of course Black cannot do this right away or else White plays Qxb5+. Now when White takes b5 with his Queen he will not give check and Black will get a extra tempo} 30.h4 Rg3 {White is lost}
