THE FOUR FROGS.





(The Guarded Chessboard)
In the illustration we have eight toadstools, with white frogs on 1 and
3 and black frogs on 6 and 8. The puzzle is to move one frog at a time,
in any order, along one of the straight lines from toadstool to
toadstool, until they have exchanged places, the white frogs being left
on 6 and 8 and the black ones on 1 and 3. If you use four counters on a
simple diagram, you will find this quite easy, but it is a little more
puzzling to do it in only seven plays, any number of successive moves by
one frog counting as one play. Of course, more than one frog cannot be
on a toadstool at the same time.
