8 Queens Puzzle

In chess, the queen can move any number of squares in any one direction, vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. The Eight Queen Puzzle requires that you place 8 queens on a standard chess board where none of the other queens can capture the others.

To play, click on the square where you would like to place a queen. Any previously placed queens that are susceptible to that queen will be removed from the board.
