Told you they would "FLIP"

The other starting move is 1.Nd7 and the third move has to be 3.Q:e5 any 4.Nd6#

1.Nc6/Nd7 Nf3(Forced) 2.Nb4/Nc5 Ne5(Forced) 3.Q:e5 Any move at all 4.Nd6#

Any other then the 2 forced black moves will allow a quicker checkmate.

Analyse position


Yes, because of the reversed position of black's K and Q you can prove that his pieces are moving UP the board. If we flip the board to its normal viewpoint to make writing the solution easier:

then one of the possible solutions is 1.Nc6 Nf3 2.Nb4 Ne5 3.Qxe5 any 4.Nd3 mate.

Well, for sure Black cannot go any further up the board!

Is black playing up the board and white playing down? I ask because of the positions of black's King and Queen

Oops! Not quite! N"a6" defends. But N"e2" would be an alternate solution...

I dunno, but seems like the old "Fried Liver Attack"

1. N "f3" and further 2.N "g5" ...

will bring back the bacon again.
