Knight Moves

Because the chess knight moves in such a peculiar pattern, the piece has attracted the creative energies of game programmers, who have invented several online games for knights that you play for free. They’re fun, and they probably improve your board vision. Enjoy.

Crazy Chess. My favorite. Highly addictive, excellent graphics, and different levels to challenge everyone.

Troyis. Hit all the white squares within 45 seconds and you advance to the next level. I can handle up to level 6 and come close to finishing level 7. How about you?

Knights Crossing. Reverse the locations of the Black and White knights. It's not as easy as it looks, but it can be done. Just pay attention.

Knight Game. Hit every square on the board using legal knight moves. Everybody wins, but how long will it take you?
