The Knight's Tour


after Martin Gardner

Home / Puzzle Playground / Puzzles / Chess 'n' Checkers /

Draw the chess board shown in Figure 1 or use our special Print 'n' Play PDF Version. Place a chess knight (or a simple coin) in any cell of this board.

The object is to visit with the knight every cell of the board exactly once, and return to the initial cell where your trip began from.

Figure 2, a and b, shows some possible moves of the chess knight which always moves either one cell in one direction, and then two cells in another direction, or vice versa.
