I don't know where to find it but you can now add one more to the list of those who are going to go crazy until it shows up!

Hi again, It looks like I may have my old Par Excellence repaired by my electronics enthusiast brother in Texas
I did manage to get a "Excellence" game recently which looks the same, except for the name sticker, and  is basically the same program.  But it also is 20 yrs old,  I hope that it holds up better than my Par Excellence did

What I was wondering  about was another game called Majestic Chess by Hoyle.
Majestic Chess - Windows Review
Game Revolution PC Review Page - Game Revolution

It's a really cool PC Chess adventure game where you learn by going to various castles etc in 8 different worlds to defeat the evil forces there in mini games with your small army of pieces against their small army which may or may not be equal in numbers. There are training facilities to teach how to exploit weak  pawns, Bishop vs Knight etc.and you can answer chess quizzes like solving several mate in one move chess problems to earn gold to buy other pieces or special abilities, such as taking a move back, or eliminating one or both of your opponents Knights or Bishops, Hints etc.  But you cant earn gold forever, you have to use what you have when the supply of gold is all in your pocket, lol.  I always bought extra pieces in order to  beat those  dastardly opponents into submission. 
Anyway's  I got through all 8 levels 2 years ago (BTW it did take over 40 hrs total as Hoyle said) and saved my program files so that  I can jump ahead to the beginning of any of the levels instead of starting only at the beginning in level 1, but I'm hung up on one quiz question in level 7 in "Memoirs to the Eagles" where you are asked to set up the position as it would have been 2 moves ago. I do remember having problems with it in 2004  but finally solving it, but now I don't remember how I did it:( 
It really isn't as easy as it may appear. It is the hardest to find of all of the composed Chess puzzles, but as I recall, it seemed relatively simple once you finally do manage to find it, lol.
Is there any place or anyone who might be able to help my sanity with the answer to just that one? I have tried for several hours to find the answer again.
