    Easy except the last third that eat up my time. Good going. Merry Christmas to everyone reading this.

    Nice puzzles but I was thinking first puzzle wins with Queen move, second puzzle wins with Bishop move, third puzzle wins with Rook move, fourth puzzle wins with knight move and maybe you should have continued by making the fifth puzzle win with a pawn move – Just saying. Greetings of the season.
