Knight's tour

The Knightís tour is a great feat of mathematical calculations that allow you to move the Knight around a chess board landing on all squares only once.

To see just how difficult it is, get out your chess board and try moving the Knight around the chess board in its L shaped motion. Imagine now that you were told to start on a particular square and do the tour from there. Or, you were told to finish on a particular square. The task will prove even more complicated!



There is a way to do the Knightís tour starting on a given square or ending on a said square.

You will nee to have completed the Dominic System here

and you will be using numbers 1 though to 64 as there are 64 squares on a chess board.


Have in your mind a location that you can use solely for the Knightís tour. I use a holiday resort in Tunisia that I stayed at. I chose this as the tiles in the hotel reminded me of a chess board.

The numbers you will need to memorise and the order they are in is below:

01, 11, 05, 20, 37, 27, 44, 29, 35, 50, 33, 43, 58, 41, 26, 09, 03, 13, 23, 08,

14, 04, 10, 25, 19, 02, 17, 34, 49, 59, 53, 47, 64, 54, 60, 45, 28, 38, 21, 36,

30, 15, 32, 22, 07, 24, 39, 56, 62, 52, 42, 57, 51, 61, 55, 40, 46, 63, 48, 31,

16, 06, 12, 18

In a situation like this it is possible to place four people from the Dominic System at each location. So in my first room, I have 01, 11, 05, and 20. But I donít have four people in that room. I have two people. What I have is the first person, ie 01 (Ozzie Ardillez) doing the action of 11 Arthur Askey. So I use the image of a Bee for Arthur Askey so instead of Ozzie Ardillez kicking a football I imagine him doing kick ups with bees! You could imagine something different for example Ozzie could be running around waving his arms frantically in the air trying to get the bees away from him! Remember, whatever image comes to mind, use it. That is the image that will first come to you. Trust your imagination.


If you look at the bottom left corner (the black square), in chess, this is called A1. But we are going to call it 1. The bottom right square (white), is number eight.

I hope the picture is clear enough for you! Just start in the bottom left and you will be able to figure out which square is numbered with what.

So if you look at the list again, you can see, for example, 01, 11, 05, and 20 this is the route you take on the board. So 01 will be Ozzie Ardilez, square one, next route on the Knightís tour, is 11, Arthur Askey. So if someone was to say to you to start from square E6, that would be square number 45. That would be Duke Ellington or whoever you have for number 45. You now know the next square will be 28, Benny Hill!
