Examples of Queens Puzzle include:
- A room-sized version of this puzzle appears in the short story "The Most Precious of Treasures" by Desmond Warzel. In a case of Only Smart People May Pass, the protagonists must solve it to enter the next room of the dungeon; however, it's not intended to be difficult. It's really a test of sentience, not intelligence.
- In Professor Layton and the Curious Village, the puzzles given by the chess player in the tavern are a N=4 and N=5, and one of the bonus puzzles is a full 8. The hints for the bonus puzzle tell you to not bother buying more hints, as you should know how to do it by that point.
- The Seventh Guest has the Eight Queens puzzle in the games room on the second floor.
- There's also an "upgraded" version involving Eight Super-Queens, which can also move like Knights. Good Luck.
- Splinter Cell: Double Agent has a 3D version of this. Genre Shift, anyone?
- Empress of the Deep: The Darkest Secret (an IHOG) has one in the Vault of War.
