Off-topic in sci.math.


Okay; let's make it on-topic.

Can the ten officers (king, queen, 2 bishops, 2 knights, 2 rooks,
chancellor, and archbishop) be placed on the
8 x 10 board so that all 80 squares are attacked? (The answer is no
for the chess board & pieces; see the thread "Source for Eight
Officers Problem?")

Pieces which move in ways different from the classical pieces are
called "fairy chess pieces"; there are good pages at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy_chess_piece and
