BTW, the only reason I'm offering my version is because Senor Fabuloso asked.

Then I should share in the profits don't you think? Given my motivating question. lol Just kidding.
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

If I'm not responding to you? It's because you're a TROLL!

Lew Brooks and I put out another take on the knights tour which had certain advantages over the traditional methods. Check out the video at penguin for more info. This may be off interest to some.

This is a very nice solution, Steven. Well done. I don't see why it couldn't also be adapted to a larger platform with a projector as well with a little thought.

It definitely could! Any venue large enough to project video from a still (or moving) camera would be a good candidate for it. All you would need is a deck of cards and a knight. Talk about packing small!

For me, the other advantage of this routine is working memory. To perform the traditional version, one must actively keep the moves in mind. Since I don't perform the Knight's Tour often, there is no way for me to justify the time and mental effort required to keep it performance-ready.

With this solution, if I don't perform it for a year or more, it's not a problem. It's always ready at a moment's notice.
