Find the longest King tour in terms of the distance travelled.
There are only two solutions.
Here are the paths:
The challenge in the Problemists Club
was to show one with
the White King and one with the Black King at the same time.
Very difficult as sooner or later the King's would clash and
neither could move into an illegal postion - the Kings can never meet.
I eventually did it after a lot of trial and error.
All 64 squares covered following the two distinct paths using
both Kings simultaneously.
Now some of you flat brainers will be thinking: "So What?"
But in the field of problem composition I have just solved
the equivalant to 'perpetual motion'.
The Mount Everest of problem solvers has been climbed..
Barnaby gave up, Checknev said it could not be done, Klugan devoted
his entire life to this project and failed, Watson & Williams too said
it was impossible.
This is a great moment for RHP
and all subs (and none subs)
can feel very proud that they are members here.
I now share this moment with you.
