"Four Knights Puzzle"
   Hi, found your web page. I have been working on this puzzle for quite some time. The solution only requires 7 moves I understand. But what are the 7 moves ??? Or is there a trick to it? If you know the solution I would appreciate you answering
this plea.

Thanks, Bob

   I am no sure what page you found. The puzzle is discussed at


It must be clear from the Hint that the minimum number of moves required to solve the puzzle is 8.

You may also argue that no piece can get to its final position in 1 move. Therefore, each piece must make at least 2 moves.
