    Knights

    Just a little something I knocked up. It's crude version of a classic game but my students have taken a shine to it. Enjoy a little timewaster.
    BTW. My best score is 46 moves.

    Re: Knights

    I am pathetic at this. Maybe I have the wrong information on allowed moves by a knight - yea , that's it. And the turning of the monitor upside down when I move blue is getting to be a drag.
    I just noticed you did not say this was fun, but a timewaster. Right on.

    Re: Knights

    If 47 is excellent, does that make 74 the opposite of excellent? <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> I'm trying again...

    Nice to hear that you're enjoying it, Ricky. I, too, think it's really entertaining (although I don't get out much). <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Knights

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't seem to get it to work. I'm using Excel 2000. Is there something special to make it work?

    Re: Knights

    Do you have macro security set to High? Check in Tools | Macro | Security. You should set it to Medium, then (re)open the Knights workbook and allow macros to run.
