The section that I visit quite often in your site is the Chess problems page. I enjoy the way we can solve those problems interactively against the computer.

The Queen puzzle shows that only eight Queens can be placed in an empty board without attacking each other in any way.

Are there any solutions showing how many Bishops, Knights, and Rooks can be placed in a board without attacking each other?
