before my seeing others’ chess-related comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting and “(?)”]: in view of the following possibility\s::::::

still black king\
white-pawn start unblocks to rook mate [or queen or north-bishop or north-knight mate]\\ ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, it seems [ re-verification is intended later on and before seeing others’ comments] that white's dsix starts

"If you are going to have any chance at all to solve any problem, first make sure your facts are correct." Ray Hyman (* 1928) speaking to graduates at Simon Fraser University (4 October 2007).

The try 1. Ng2? fails to 1.. Kf5! Shown is a Pickaninny of bPe7 (all four possible moves) after the key 1. cxd6 (2. Rc4#); now any move of bPe7 defends the threat by pinning the wR, but creates another weakness: 1.. exd6, e6, e5 exf6 2. Nxd6#, Qg4#, Bxd5#, Nxf6#. A side variation is 1.. Ba6 2. Qg4#.
