Description

Loshadka has been played by Russians since Mongol invasion. Some historians claim that the game was invented in the 9th century in Chernigov (Ukraine).

This chess puzzle holds the honorable second place after "Sea Battle" in the amount of time killed.

The rules are simple:

- There is a chess board with a single "Knight" chess piece on it.

- You should move the Knight so that it visits as many squares as possible. Each square may be visited only once.

- If you don't know how to move the Knight, we'll show it to you.

Here is some history:

Czar Ivan The Terrible used this game to test his Boyars: those who failed the test were given a choice of either being torn apart by wild animals or drinking boiling sunflower oil.

Peter The Great spread the game across all layers of Russian society. Duke Menshikov wrote: "I consider a day wasted if it passed without a round of Loshadka."

At Soviet times the game gained official recognition. One of the first decrees of Soviet government was dedicated to establishing All Russian Loshadka Society (VLO). Trotsky himself lead VLO until his tragic death in 1940.

Stalin banned Loshadka as "anti-communist entertainment". Many Loshadka enthusiasts ended up in Siberia. No wonder the game became a symbol of Perestroika along with Vodka Prohibition and the fall of Berlin Wall.

Simple app, fun puzzle!

:
Played a few times before I had to find the solution online 

I know it's supposed to waste your time, but this solution might save you some (SPOILER ALERT!)
Check all available fields from the current position. For each one, find the number of open fields that could move to that field.
Move to the field that had the least open fields that could jump to it.

4/5 stars

EZ UI, nice challenge

:
New twist on an old game. Great for a puzzling challenge. Or great practice for Knight maneuvers in chess. Idea: build in progress chart graphic to track n visually show progress. Thanks for making this n offering for free.
