N-Knights and N-Queens are two excellent computer versions of the classic chess problems. N-Knights contains two problems, Max Knights and Min Knights. In the Max Knights puzzle, your goal is to move the knight around the chessboard without stepping on the same square twice. On the 4x4 board, the maximum number of moves you can make is fifteen. In the Min Knights puzzle, the objective is to place the minimum number of knights on the board that can attack all the empty squares without attacking each other.

N-Queen presents another chess problem: place N chess queens on the board in such a way that no queen can attack another. Both games are well-coded, with high scores tables, different board sizes (from 4x4 to 12x12), and very intuitive Windows-based interfaces. Together, they are great mind games for all chess enthusiasts, as well as anyone who enjoys a cerebral challenge that does not rely on luck.
