Queens and Pawns

This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.

In 2004, the Chess Variant Pages held a contest on the Nine Queens Problem, which asked readers to place nine queens -- and a pawn -- on a standard chessboard so that no two queens could attack each other.

The "Queens and Pawns" ZRF file contains that problem (The file calls it the "Eight Plus One Queens Problem" to avoid confusion with the problem of putting nine queens on a 9 by 9 chessboard) as well as similar problems on different-sized boards.
