Boden's Mate can be tricky. If you're looking for an example, look here:
(thanks, KinectKid333!)

Even if the AI is a pushover (on Novice it gives pieces away), this may cause a headache. I suggest you either do this with a friend or by yourself. Note that a solo method requires an extra tag on your box, and you have to switch accounts back and forth. Local MP will not work for this.

This is a short 6-move solution that I created. Maybe there's a shorter one, but it works. It uses chess notation, but I provide an easier description underneath. This assumes that you are white. If you're black, take the number and subtract it from 9 to get the correct position; you will have to also have white make dummy first move. I suggest Na3 (queenside knight to a3).

1. d4 h6
2. b3 e6
3. e3 f6
4. Bd3 Ba3
5. Bxa3 a6
6. Bg6#

1. Move your D pawn (in front of the queen) 2 spaces.
1. Opponent moves H pawn 1 space.
2. Move B pawn up 1.
2. Opponent moves E pawn up 1.
3. Move E pawn up 1.
3. Opponent moves F pawn up 1.
4. Move kingside bishop to D3.
4. Opponent moves kingside bishop to A3.
5. Capture opponent's bishop with your queenside bishop at A3.
5. Opponent moves A pawn up 1.
6. Move kingside bishop to G6. Checkmate.

Hope this helps! toast
