Inspired by this question
Here's a quick Knight Checker (a chess variant) puzzle. In case you haven't read the rules to it in the above link, I'll repost them here:
- Each player begins with 1 knight on each square on their back rank (the knights move and capture as normal)
- To win, a player must move a knight to the other player's back rank (a touchdown) or capture all of the other player's knights.
- If a player moves a knight to the other player's back rank, and the other player has a knight guarding that square, then the other player can capture the knight on their next move, preventing the touchdown.
Here's a Knight Checker puzzle I came up with. (It's probably a little easy, because it's my first Knight Checker puzzle. I may do more in the future.)
White to move and touchdown in 3.
