Perceptual Puzzle #08- How Many Checkers -

Share this page on:
Puzzle Image The image at left shows four squares of a standard eight by eight checkerboard with a jumbo-sized checker in each square. The diameter of the jumbo-sized checker matches the width (and height) of the checkerboard square. With creative positioning, it is possible to fit more than 64 of these checkers on an eight by eight checkerboard. What is the maximum number of COMPLETE checkers (i.e. checkers cannot be cut) that can fit on the checkerboard without going over any edges and without stacking checkers?
Do you have a suggestion for this puzzle (e.g. something that should be mentioned/clarified in the question or solution, bug, typo, etc.)?
