 Knight vs King and Mines (Posted on 2005-03-07)
A white knight is at c1, and the black king is at its starting position. White moves first, and tries to reach the black king, who will remain at its square. At each turn, the black king can sow a mine in any empty square. White wins if the knight reaches the King, and loses if it runs out of moves.

Who wins this game?
