An 1897 puzzle by Charles Camburn (patent 591,737) is nice. You have 19 pawns and one king. Place the pawns on 19 of the 20 starred squares, and the king on one of the shaded squares. In a series of 19 horizontal/vertical jumps, remove all the pawns. Camburn claims (in his patent claims) that the solution is unique. Miroslav Figlar, Adam Dewbery, Marcelo Nogueira, Dave Tuller, Wei-Hwu Huang, Juha Saukkola, Chris Lusby Taylor, Bill Daly, and Joseph DeVincentis have solved Camburn's Jumping puzzle.
