If you are good at playing chess, they can try their hand at a serious matter.
One recent study of this puzzle showed that for the complete settlement solutions may need more than one thousand years.

British scientists offer a million dollars for solving chess puzzles
This mystery known to the world since 1850. The meaning of the puzzle is to set the standard 64-cell chessboard and eight Queens. However, it must be done so that none of the chess pieces are unable to attack another.
It is implied that the Queen takes all the cells located on the verticals, horizontals and both diagonals. The generalization of the problem — to place the maximum number of mutually not beating each other Queens on a rectangular field, in particular, a square field with side n.
The researchers are confident that the genius who could write such an algorithm will be able to adapt it to solve other, more important tasks. In other words, a lot of money, scientists are trying to “lure” this genius.
At the same time, one recent study of this puzzle showed that to complete the calculations of its solution may need more than one thousand years.
