Rook vs Bishop (Posted on 2011-01-25) Difficulty: 3 of 5
1. What is the minimal number of 90-degree turns for a bishop to walk through all the black squares of a standard 8*8 chessboard, starting at h8 and terminating at a1?

2. What if in question 1 the word "black" is erased and the word "bishop" is replaced by "rook"?
