From the introduction:
My first public performance of The Knight's Tour initiated some interesting responses from the audience. Partway through the performance, some spectators began turning around, looking towards the back of the theatre. I realised they were looking for someone or something helping me. If I appeared to be 'lost' or having difficulty, someone would call out numbers to "help" me. Some audience members actually leaned forward in their seats with anticipation as I was approaching the finish. Spectators enthusiastically spoke with me after the show. Their questions included:
The response far exceeded my expectations!
- "How can you do that?"
- "I'd like to challenge you to a chess game one day."
- "Are you a mathematical genius?"
- "How long have you played chess?"
- "When did you discover that you could do this?"
- "Do you have a photographic memory?"
