An open source implementation of Knight's Tour

Here's my first program I deliver here. It's a simple game : eptaxia. This was an old mind game I used to play since I was in high school (in boring classes). I don't know it's real name.

You can also get the source codes of the game. Below, in this page, you'll find a link to Code Project where it resides.

All is free of course.

note : .NET Framework 2.0 needed. If it's not already installed on your PC, the setup procedure will help you to install it from

The game consists of one main screen and a settings form. The figure here explains all the functions of the buttons.

The Rules

The rules are simple.

1. For the very first movement, you choose any one of the empty cells. This cell will be labeled as 1.

2. Then, choose your next move. Next move will be as similar to L shaped knight movement of chess.

3. Try to fill all the cells of your chosen configuration. If you have no movement option left before filling the table, you fail.

The original of the game is 7x7. But you can try other dimensions as 5x5, 6x6, 8x8 and 9x9. All are possible configurations.
