You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Do Knights have a choice of L-shaped path, e.g. a1-a2-a3-b3 or a1-b1-b2-b3? It seems odd to impose a restriction on Knights at all, other than for the destination square. If Knights are not blocked by pieces, why should they be blocked by tiles?
