Queen's problem

  • #1

    The objective of this puzzle is to arrange the queens in a manner to control as many squares on the board as possible.  For example, I shall do 8 queens.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Now how would you solve 7 queens?  6 queens?  5 queens?  4 queens?  If all 64 squares cannot be controlled, what is the maximum number that can be controlled?  Lets see how the community fairs :)
