Knight's Tour




Knight's tour is a puzzle by which a chess knight is moved on a board so that is is placed in every square on the board only once. It has been documented in India, where the movement of the horse piece in Chaturanga has the same movement as the chess knight.


The goal is to move one knight onto every square on an 8x8 board only once.
