Description

In his column in the July 1980 issue of Scientific American, Martin Gardner (well known for this writings on mathematical recreations), gives the following one dimensional chess variants.

Rules

Here, the King and Rook move as usual, and the knight moves exactly two squares, and may jump over a piece doing that. Gardner asks his readers whether white can win. (White can make a draw by taking the opponents rook and thus giving stalemate.).
