One more comment: there is a 2-player version of this puzzle. Players take turns placing Queens on an n x n chessboard such that no Queen is attacked. If a player has no more unattacked squares to put a Queen on, that player loses.<p> The game is called the Queen's Independence Game. See item 4 of <a href='http://www.cs.clemson.edu/~hedet/domination.html'> http://www.cs.clemson.edu/~hedet/domination.html</a> for more details.
