Disarray - Now, Rife At the Black Court (Posted on 2007-10-25) Difficulty: 3 of 5
While still at home the Black King, in rather similar circumstances as his White oppressor, finds disarray at Court [K, Q, QB, QKt, QR] on his Queen’s side.

Again, he is the only occupant of the first rank and all 5 pieces are spread within the domain [K1 – QR5] with none being a direct threat to another.

Find a situation where the occupants again enjoy a lesser domain, and the Queen again can force ‘mate’ without herself being under any threat; after a successful "coup d'etat" who cares if another is also under threat?

Bonus:
I offer 28 scenarios where the Court enjoys 'serenity', but how many fit the "more reduced" domain category?.

I had not noticed, until reading Dej Mar's post, that there are indeed four arrangements where the rightmost file(column) is not used, making for a lesser board, though still without any checkmating possibilities.
