      That’s it. They always move to another colour, so you can put 32 on all the white spaces and none can attack another.

    This might sound smart-arsey, but the correct answer should be 64 if they are all white or all black

      Well we have already played with the rules of chess a fair amount by putting more than four knights on the board, so I think we may have to abandon the premise that two pieces of the same colour can’t attack each other.

      Maybe these knights all hate each other. Maybe this is some kind of Game of Thrones Chess.

      P.S. Being smart-arsey is a pretty substantial part of iQ Trivia.
