Print Chess Puzzles

Below you will find some pdf files with chess puzzels to print. I've just started, so at the moment you'll only find some super easy puzzles, as well as some puzzles derived from my old games at FICS, the Free Internet Chess Server.
I placed them for testing purpose so don't take the problems too seriously. :)

I'll add some more to this page in the next few weeks. For comments please feel free to contact me.

The difference between a Chess Problem and a Chess Puzzle

A chess problem, also called a chess composition, is a puzzle set by somebody using chess pieces on a chess board, that presents the solver with a particular task to be achieved. For instance, a position might be given with the instruction that white is to move first, and checkmate black in two moves against any possible defense.

The term "chess problem" is not sharply defined: there is no clear demarcation between chess compositions on the one hand and puzzles or tactical exercises on the other.

Problems can be contrasted with tactical puzzles often found in chess columns or magazines in which the task is to find the best move or sequence of moves (usually leading to mate or gain of material) from a given position. Such puzzles are often taken from actual games, or at least have positions which look as if they could have arisen during a game, and are used for instructional purposes.

That's it. Have fun!
