To the Hungarians he's a Hussar,, to the Germans he's der Springer, to we English-speakers he's just the Knight. He's an old and trusted friend who intrigues beginners with his steeple-chasing moves and perpetrates atrocities on our opponents in blitz.
The Knight is a trusted chess-board friend and we all know his idiosyncrasies, so why should a simple problem involving Knight moves cause us any difficulty?
In this puzzle all you have to do is move the Knight from his stable on a8 to land on every square on the chess board.
Even if you're not a chess player you can try this. Just remember that the Knight can move one square along and two to the side, or two squares along and one to the side. That is, if he sits on a black square he can move to any second white square from him, or if he starts on white he moves to any second black square from him. You'll get the idea. It's easy!
Good luck . . .
