Move 3 white pieces to any unoccupied black squares.

In order for the Red Queen to capture all 12.

(The queen captures by jumping diagonally over a white

piece and continue with another pieces in any direction)

Spoiler for It would appear

Aaaagh!   Just spotted a mistake.  But I think the method is more or less right.

Original poster, are the three white pieces to necessarily be moved before the queen even begins

to make the first capture?

@ perhaps check it again & fabpig -Place  all the 3 white pieces first then the queen moves to take all of the 12 white pieces.

Checker rule: Queens can jump over 2 to 7 squares over a single opponent piece to capture and must go on in any

direction from its landing squares until there is no more to capture. There are many rules but i guess this one is commonly

used.

"...Queens can jump over 2 to 7 squares over a single opponent piece..."

Well that's a new one to me, and, I suspect, 99%+ of others reading this.   Still, now we know the rules...
