    Not good at chess notation but I think I got it.

    Qa3 Check
    Black can block with Queen and/or Knight, but Queen takes these and regardless forces black King to g8.
    Then Rf8 (or Qf8) Check, Rook takes, then Rf8 for game.

  2. Cameron: Good work! Yes, that Qa3+ is important to force the enemy King to g8, thus removing a guard from e8 so the white Rooks can do their rooky thing.
