Three Queens


by Martin Gardner

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

Can you place three chess queens on a 6x6 board so that all vacant cells are attacked? A vacant cell is considered to be attacked when it is in the same row, column or diagonal with at least one of the queens. 

The basic scheme of the chess queen's moves is shown in the above right illustration.

You may print out the board from our special
Print 'n' Play PDF Version and use three coins as queens.
