  6. I am so glad series continued. May God give you stronger health

  7. i hope you are good and i hope you continue these series and mabye you can continue some older series like weekly quiz or stump the chump that would be great

  8. 3 typos: @1:00 "Mapmaker" has an extra P. @9:32: "Believe" (the i and e are switched). @9:38 (missing apostrophe on "you'd").

  9. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ The series finally returned πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  10. Aww, Nelson…!! Why'd you have and go sucker-punch me with that rook promotion?! All that time I was thinking knight, but nope. 🀣🀣

  11. Wooooo Nelson, im sooooooo happy for this series to be back πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰


  13. ΞœΞΏΟ…Ο‡Ξ±ΟΞ­ΞΌ Ιντ΢έ says:

    What a good look Nelson you nailed it.

    Also what the… I thought you said in the 1650s that the series' over.

  14. ΞœΞΏΟ…Ο‡Ξ±ΟΞ­ΞΌ Ιντ΢έ says:

    Im glad I saw Rd8

  15. So glad your back, hope you keep on doing better

  16. What happened to Caterpillar with hidden phone? Is it a butterfly yet?

  17. How about a pill that lowers the players chess rating and causes him to make bad moves.

  18. This puzzle is one thing what you miss, Nelson

    Stockfish say this:
    b6+ Ka6
    b7 Rc5+
    Kb8 Rh5
    Ka8 Rd5!
    b8R Rd7
    and now Rb6+ Kxa5
    white win but after 47 moves

  19. Glad you are back and feeling well enough to make these again

  20. More great stuff! But please don't tell us the outcome in advance!

  21. Since Chess Adventures is back, I might as well ask this question right now: Is it me or did Peter Patzer look less ugly when his rating increased? I know he always looked the same, but something about him seemed less ugly. (Please do not take this the wrong way Chess Vibes. Peter Patzer’s design was good.)

  22. Thanks for bringing back this series, Nelson! We’ve missed you.

  23. Although I an very pleased that Bobby and the gang are back, I gotta say, the fact that it wasn’t a knight promotion when it would have been a check is a little disappointing

    Also, at 6:17, what happens if black goes Rxa5, nabbing a pawn while setting up for a discovered check by going Kb6 in response to Ka8 from white?

  24. Great to know you're feeling better, more than anything else.

  25. I hope your health issues are behind you. I very much enjoy this series and have eagerly anticipated your return to it. Thanks for the entertainment. Ed


  27. Thanks for come back with new episodes of puzzle iland πŸ˜€ really like them and try solve them

  28. Welcome back, Nelson!! …so good to see the story to continue… 😍

  29. Please don't apologise for taking time to make this. This is a great and fun series. And I guess your resources are limited so it is going to take time to make interesting episodes. Just don't let the series die. Take all the time you need to keep it going. And thanks a lot for your work.

  30. Omg it has been so damn long lolπŸ˜… but lots of love ❀❀

  31. Thank you for bringing back my best chess friends!
