    Shall we try knights too!

    What is the maximum number of knights that you can put on a chess board before one is able to take another ?.

    Also the colour is irrelevant.

    Without testing with an actual chess board, the number 32 is what comes into mind.

    no. For instance: b1 can take a3, b2 takes a2. That takes away 8 possibilities.

    Aren't there other options? It seems so logical!
