Hey, Kevin, we're saying the same thing about the N move, although I said it rather clumsily, an occupational hazard when I'm very short on sleep. Let me phrase it this way:

The board is too small if the knight cannot make a complete tour on any and every individual 2D board section presented in the game without ever leaving that 2D section until the tour is complete.

Heh, saying the N could make the tour 'comfortably' was probably not as precise as I would have liked. But however you cut it, I think your minimum 2D level size is not 19 but 37, giving 1369 locations. The only game software I know that would handle that size is Vassal. But it should handle it very easily.
