  1. I actually solved this instantly (literally looked at it -> hm knight sacs galore and win, cool… ) because it screamed composition lol.

    Thank you in advance for any +1's/shares etc…
    Enjoy! 🙂

  3. Very goofy, but also really interesting.  Cool pattern, great way to think outside of the box.  Only problem is that once you see the first move it isn't very exciting.
