For anyone who would like to find more puzzles in the meantime, however, here are a few suggestions:
- Chess: 5334 Problems, Combinations, and Games, by Laszlo Polgar. This large puzzle collection sometimes shows up at Half Price Books, is available through Amazon, and has a kindle version.
- Chesskid.com This website has a lot of resources for children learning chess, including puzzles.
- Chess.com This site has not just standard but also some ‘Retrograde Analysis’ puzzles, which are of the same type as what made up our tricky April Fools problems.
- Pointing your favorite search engine to “Chess Retrograde Analysis Puzzles” should give a number of hits, but one good resource for specifically this sort of problem is The Retrograde Analysis Corner (www.janko.at/Retros/Index.htm
). This site includes explanation of what Retro Analysis is and how to approach the problems, as well as more than 3500 such problems.
