Exploring mod 2 n-queens games

Open access

Abstract

We introduce a two player game on an n × n chessboard where queens are placed by alternating turns on a chessboard square whose availability is determined by the parity of the number of queens already on the board which can attack that square. The game is explored as well as its variations and complexity.
