before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: north white knight move\ black-bishop defence , to mate with knight after black-queen defence [or to mate with queen\ knight], white's ndtwo starts

A random move of wNe4 threatens 2. Qe4#, and on 1.. d5 there is 2. Qe7#, but there are the thematic defenses 1.. Qa8!, Bg6!, Nd5! that refute 1. Nf6?, Nc3?, Nc5? respectively. So only the move to d2 solves. Mates are changed on the thematic defenses (Zagoruiko). FIDE Album.
