I saw this question On an infinite board, which pieces are needed to checkmate? and was inspired by it. Many mating combinations won't suffice on a toroidal board. For example, queen vs king will be a draw in this scenario, as the king and queen will never cover all escape routes.

Which piece combinations will be able to checkmate in this scenario?

    It's an 8x8 toroidal board?

  • Yes it is an 8x8 board Jan 20 at 5:01
  • 2 knight + 2 bishop is an example I can think of. Jan 20 at 6:49
  • Seems like QR should be able to manage it. Don't think RR can. Jan 20 at 16:23
