Knight's Tour (2) (Posted on 2004-03-06) Difficulty: 2 of 5
On a normal 8x8 chessboard, find a complete Knight's Tour.

A Knight's move is as in chess, an L shaped move, 2 squares in one direction and 1 square in the other direction.)

A Knight's Tour is one where the knight passes through each square exactly once.

You may start on any square you wish.

* For extra credit, come up with a re-entrant tour: at the end, the knight is exactly one knight's move away from the starting square.

* For EXTRA extra credit, make sure that the path is, in some way, symmetrical.

This does not require a computer program.

On second thought, duh, that won't work. I sort of overlooked what had been said about alternating colors until I actually drew my own board and tried to figure out where to start and end. Maybe eight sections of eight moves, that connect somehow...
