Fools mate takes 2 turns to do, the losing player must move both pawns on the king's side i n front of knight and bishop forward 1 and 2 spaces (move the bishop pawn one space and knight pawn 2 spaces), the white player must make it possible for his white bishop to move to the square next to the furthest moved pawn which puts the king in checkmate as it cannot escape chess, p.s.
