Chess Game Trick


As we know that white starts the game of chess. Can you find the scenario shown in the picture below is possible when all the white pieces are at the original place while the black pawn is not as in the below picture?

    MULTIPLE variations (all basically same) are possible. All include opening by white with knight, as follows:

    Option A: 1 Na3 e5 2 Nb1   (Knight goes back to original position, restoring all write pieces to original positions)
    Option B: 1 Nc3 e5 2 Nb1

    (both options involving opening with b-knight) and ‘mirror images’ of the the above two, involving opening with the g-knight.

    Moreover, similar knight moves by black also can be combined,

    e.g., 1 Nc3  Nc6 2. Nf3 – e5 3. Nb1  Nb8 4. Ng1
