in reply to Looking backwards to GO forwards

The method you mention here is called retrograde analysis and is e.g. applied to chess endgames. There have been quite some advancements in recent years proving for example a forced mate in 223 (!) moves from any starting position for a six pieces endgame with king, rook and bishop defeating king and two knights.
