Cant fault that logic! The only 8 queen solution I have seen is where all the Queens are the same knight-move apart (ie 2up 1right, 2up 1right, 2up 1right).

It cannot be done? I love these puzzles and this Problem CAN be done its not easy though,

The 8 Queens go on these exact Squares this wont work anywhere else, Try it yourself, not one Queen is threatening another Queen.
From Line A-H
Queens:
1:a5
2:b3
3:c1
4:d7
5:e2
6:f8
7:g6
8:h4

Try it out for yourself it works. Its Very Possible ðŸ™‚

Not only can your configuration be rotated 3 different ways, but there is an example in this thread of a solution with a Q on a center square. So, it's not quite true that the Queens must go on 'exact squares'.
