COMMENTS

The infinite hexagonal board is numbered spirally as:

.

      17--18--19...

     /

    16   6---7---8

   /    /         \

  15   5   1---2   9

   \    \     /   /

    14   4---3  10

     \          /

      13--12--11

.

In Glinski's hexagonal chess, a knight (N) can move to these (o) cells:

.

      . . . . .

     . . o o . .

    . o . . . o .

   . o . . . . o .

  . . . . N . . . .

   . o . . . . o .

    . o . . . o .

     . . o o . .

      . . . . .

.

This sequence is finite and ends at a(83966) = 72085 when the knight is "trapped".

Blue dots show the twelve occupied squares surrounding the final square. The lowest unvisited square, 71301, is the yellow dot on the edge at the 9:00 clock position.
