Too Many Queens 4 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.

You have three queens positioned on an 8x8 chessboard. Place the remaining five queens on the board so that no piece blocks another's line of movement.

This is a tough one!

You're sure you can't think this one out by yourself?

Oh, all right. Here's a hint: leave the four corner spaces empty.

Place one queen in the space third from the top in the far-left column.

Place another queen in the far-right column, three spaces from the bottom.

One queen goes in the space one to the right of the upper-left corner.

Place another queen in the bottom row four spaces from the right.



You got it!

Since three queens were already in place before you began, there's only one possible solution for this problem.

What's that? You think it'd be more interesting if you had to place all eight queens by yourself?!
