Forgive my impertinence, Minister,
...but isn't the board position shown impossible? White square on the right-hand corner, and all that?

(just directing attention away from my inability to come up with a solution.blush Carry on.)

When it rains...
...it does pour! Scurvy, this is also my first GG. I'd have more, but a game I submitted a few days ago (Char? Anyone else heard of it?) hasn't been approved yet.

Thank you kindly, gialmere.

Although i think the gold is gone: Looks like the (double) knight check, then queen check, then knight moves back were it was for the mate.
