### Knights tourmemory

1. 1. KnightsTourMemory Memorized Knight's Tour The Knight's Tour is a classic challenge based on the game of Chess. The challenge is to move a chess knight, using only the standard chess knight move, around an 8x8 chess board so that each square is landed on once and only once, starting from any square designated by an audience member. A chess knight moves either 1 square horizontally and 2 squares vertically, or 2 squares horizontally and 1 square vertically. From the knight's position (denoted with a N below), he can move to any of the squares marked with an X (An underscore denotes an square to which the knight cannot move). <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF >_ >_ >X >_ >X >_ >_ >_ <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 >_ >X >_ >_ >_ >X >_ >_ <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF >_ >_ >_ >N >_ >_ >_ >_ <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 >_ >X >_ >_ >_ >X >_ >_ <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF >_ >_ >X >_ >X >_ >_ >_ <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ >_ Coordinates Each square will be given a set of coordinates, and a path that allows any one of the 64 squares to be a starting point, and covers all 64 squares, will be memorized. There are two kinds of coordinates that can be used in this challenge, and the memorization method will vary slightly with each kind. Linear Coordinates Linear coordinates simply designate each square with a number from 1 to 64. This method is most effective when performing for an audience that isn't familiar with chess (which will be most audiences).

Algebraic Coordinates Algebraic coordinates designate each column with a small letter from a-h, and each row with a number from 1-8. This method is most effective when performing for an audience of chess players, as this is standard chess notation. <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 > a8 > b8 > c8 > d8 > e8 > f8 > g8 > h8 <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF > a7 > b7 > c7 > d7 > e7 > f7 > g7 > h7 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 > a6 > b6 > c6 > d6 > e6 > f6 > g6 > h6 <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF > a5 > b5 > c5 > d5 > e5 > f5 > g5 > h5 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 > a4 > b4 > c4 > d4 > e4 > f4 > g4 > h4 <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF > a3 > b3 > c3 > d3 > e3 > f3 > g3 > h3 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 > a2 > b2 > c2 > d2 > e2 > f2 > g2 > h2 <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF <#888888 <#FFFFFF > a1 > b1 > c1 > d1 > e1 > f1 > g1 > h1
