Now lumbering into the lists comes the New Model Five-Jog Knight - no, not some odd-gaited Cromwellian cavalryman, but a new, improved, larger, shinier and more complete version of the vanquished old Five-Jog Knight (who now, in the newcomer's brilliance, seems a knight light indeed). As a puzzle, the New Model looks to be an even thornier challenge than its less pointy predecessor, accoutered with no fewer than 16 new pathways (omitted by oversight from the old model) in its network, it boasts nearly twice as many nodes, network segments and total letters.
