    Chess problem 3

    Ok Guys

    This is the last in the series and for masochists!

    Using the same rules as Chess problem and Chess problem 2, make the Knight move around the board visiting each square once and only once. Despite comments in the first puzzle about odd numbers of grey and white squares on the board this one is solvable and I have the answer on my desk in front of me.

    Excellent BAN.

    3 minutes behind Lyra but a stirling effort. Amazingly enough it is a 90 degree obverse flip of mine.

    Thanks! I would have been about 10 minutes faster, but it took me that long to figure out how to make the text line up so it would be readable...I don't know why I didn't think to just post my spreadsheet <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Just a quick BTW - there seem to be some free Chess Fonts here if of use.

    (At least they may wipe the smilie off the face of your board <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> )
