Revisiting the MinAttak chess problem

I blogged about my old Java Applet for the chess minimum attack (dominance) puzzle previously here.

But of course Java Applets are now deader than a very dead thing that’s also been poisoned, burnt, and crushed.  I’ve been playing around trying to learn a bit more JavaScript, and as a learning exercise, I coded up a MinAttak page that should work in any modern browser that has drag-and-drop capability.  Most phone and tablet browsers don’t have that yet – really you need a mouse.

Anyway it’s manual only at the moment, but I may add a solver to it if I don’t become too bored with JavaScript!  Try it out below – it’s not just an image – if you have a mouse you should be able to drag the pieces around and see it working.
