I don't quite understand what the point is in the knights shuffling seats. Does the numbering stay with the knight or the seat? 17:59, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

It just means the nine values are shuffled. You can see it as the values being shuffled while the knights don't move, or the knights being shuffled while the values don't move, it's all the same. Shuffling means the nine values are still there, held by nine variables called one..nine, but it is unknown which variables hold which values. For instance, if knight One was holding the value 42 immediately before the shuffling, then it is guaranteed that one of the nine knights now hold 42, but there is no guarantee as to what that knight is called. --Koen (talk) 11:02, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
