It was almost inevitable, after days of mind-numbing animation, that I would make a mistake in my recent Knight's Tour video

And indeeed I made an error showing the path of magic knight's tour, making a mis-step over the final few moves… 61-62-63-64.

This one, from the video, is wrong (it is legitimate tour, but not quite magic):

And this one is right (I think):

Each column and row should add to 260.

Here are some great resources from people who really know there stuff when it cmes to Knight's Tours…
