Puzzle based games
This section focuses on the best behavioral strategies in various well-known (and not so) board games. Also here are all puzzles based on games, such as interesting chess problems.
1) Double chess.
Two play chess according to the following rules: first, White makes two moves, then Black moves, then White moves again, etc. If one of the kings is declared check (admit, black), then in this case the move immediately goes to black, but they have only one move to leave from the check .)
The task: to prove that in such a party, when White has the best game, it is guaranteed a draw as minimum. Answer
2) On the ordinary chessboard there is a white king (field A1), and a black king (field D4). Add two white rooks and a white horse so that the black king is mated. Answer
3) How many horses do you need to attack the entire board? To control the whole board? Answer
4) What is the maximum number of horses that can be placed on a board of size N * N so that they do not threaten each other? Answer

10) The simple (and most common) version of the game "him":
Probably everyone knows the game, where several matches are put on the table (as an option, cards) and the opponents take turns picking up 1, 2 or 3 matches. Who takes the last - lost. Is there any strategy for correct play? Answer
                  ]         Is it possible to use the following set of such figures to build the following figures:
1. 4 * 7 rectangle
                            2. triangle                            Answer

2. Transfer a pebble to a free well which is located behind its immediate neighbor (by jumping over a pebble)
For what least number of moves can you swap black and white pebbles? Stamp the appropriate sequence of moves. Answer
13) I think you all know how chess pieces are arranged, and how they walk? There is a riddle for you: playing for both sides, for what minimum number of moves from the beginning of the game you can checkmate one of the sides, and what moves they will be. By the way, this year I put up just such a mate, playing with an opponent. But he plays weakly. I played 50 games with him and won everything. Answer
14) I suspect that everyone knows how to play the "fool". Here is a problem related to this ancient and wise game: one player has a trump lady, and the other has the rest of the deck and the right of the first move. Who wins the best game of both sides? Answer
