About the Book

This book was the result of the best puzzles submitted to a competition in Acorn User magazine . The book is worth buying just to see the elegant coding of the winning puzzle which solves the ancient puzzle of the Chess Board Knight's Tour without resorting to the usual 'diamonds and squares' method.
Sadly, the editor Simon Dally died on the 26th of March 1989.

First Sentence

This book was born out of the experience of setting the competitions for Acorn User each month since its launching in July 1982.
