Here is a splendid collection of 99 puzzles, some adapted and some original with the author, and all built around some form of the chessboard, generally the well-known 8 x 8 version.
In this book you’ll find a rich selection of arithmetical and probability problems, chessboard recreations, geometrical puzzles, mathematical amusements and games, and more. In many cases, the author has modified standard problems with new, interesting twists. To solve these puzzles, you don’t have to be a chess player. All you need to know are the rules of the games, and in some cases, not even that.
Clearly described and accurately answered, these perplexing puzzles will appeal not only to math and chess buffs but also to everyone who enjoys testing their wits against a carefully selected array of the best puzzles in recreational math literature. Includes solutions.
