Pixelpusher variant: TryThis Chess

Pixelpusher is a rather weak chess variants playing applet. To make playing against the applet a challenge, I applied an easy trick: I give the computer player much stronger pieces.

So, white has the normal set of pieces, and black (the computer) has a king, seven queens, and eight pawns. Can you still win from this strong & weak opponent?

This only works with Java enabled browsers.

TryThis Chess was thought up (invented is too big a word for this) by Hans Bodlaender, June 1998.
