On a chessboard with 8 × 8 squares, a rook threatens all the chess pieces in the the same line or the same column in which it stands, regardless of whether another rook stands in between or not!! How many rooks can be placed on the chessboard maximally so that each tower threatens at most two more rooks? Last edited by skipjack; September 10th, 2018 at 12:51 PM.

What does "tower" mean?

Are you assuming two sides (black and white) where threats are only to opposing pieces?
