Dear readers, I hope you like chess, or at least have a basic understanding of the concepts because you’ll need to know how one of the pieces work.
Max Bezzel, a German chess master, was the first to pose this question, in 1848. It has provided plenty of material for discussion since then.
A chess queen attacks in eight directions — vertical, horizontal, and diagonal straight lines. His question was whether it was possible to place eight queens on a regular 8×8 chess board so that none of them could attack any other.
Are you able to find a way to do it?
