The knight

The knight is a very special chess piece. It looks like a horse. And just like a real horse, it can jump! The knight can jump over squares and other chess pieces. That is often quite useful.

But a knight may not jump to wherever it likes. It can’t move very far. The knight always moves two squares up or down, and then one square sideways. It can jump in all directions: forwards, backwards, to the left and to the right.

Look at the board. The knight can jump to eight squares. A knight on the edge of the board or in a corner has fewer options.

What do you have to do?
First, move the knight to collect all the coins. Then, go to the flag and take that. This is not so easy with a knight. Good luck!
