There's an error in this file in that Zillions misses checkmates very easily. You can beat the fibonacci chess at expert level in 3 turns:

1. Nf3

1... Nf6 2. e4 e5

2... Ne4-f2-d1

3. Bc4 Ng5 Bxf7#

and, indeed, if you ask for a hint before the last move, it suggests Nxf7, even after analysing Bxf7.
