In chess, a king can move to nay of the eight adjacent squares on the board - up, down, left, right, and the four diagonals. One can construct logological challenges by inserting letters on individual squares of a chessboard (extended, if necessary, beyond its 8x8 limits), and spelling out words by moving from letter to letter via king's moves.
