Too Many Queens 2 is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.


In chess, the queen can move the full length of the board diagonally, vertically, and horizontally.

See if you can place five queens on this 5x5 chessboard. There's a catch though! You must arrange the pieces so that no queen blocks another's line of movement.


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Here's a hint to get you started: place one queen in the dead center of the board.

Once you place one piece in the board's center, you'll only have four pieces left to place.

The remaining four pieces will surround the center in a symmetrical shape.

Don't put any pieces in the four corner spaces of the board. You can also ignore the eight spaces directly surrounding the center space.



Very nice!

This one was a bit tougher than the 4x4 version, wasn't it? There's more than one answer for this puzzle, so if you really want a challenge, search for alternate solutions.
