 Colourful Knight's Tour (Posted on 2008-01-24)
A knight enters the grid at number 1 and then moves, as if he were on a chessboard, to number 2. He visits every square in numerical order, before exiting at number 64.

KEY:
Blue = cube numbers (1, 8, 27 and 64)
Green = squares which are not cubes (4, 9, 16, 25, 36 and 49)
Red = prime numbers (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59 and 61)
Yellow = multiples of ten (10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60)
Purple = multiples of 11 which are not prime (22, 33, 44 and 55)

One number has been added to get you started.
 35

brianjn,

"3" was not inserted in the first grid as it could, without the more in-depth analysis needed, be located in E1 -or- E3.  Yet knowing it could be in either of those two squares, and that "4" must be in a green square, the placement of "4" in G2 was almost a no-brainer and I continued on with the 'two-or-three move look ahead' filling the squares...  Of course, with any new placements, I went back to those 'break points' to check, with the 'two-or-three move look ahead', to see if I could positively make any additional number placements.

With the 'gift' number (35), it wasn't necessary to look ahead more than the two-or-three moves to determine what number placements to make.
