Hints on how to go about solving this. 1. It helps to start by placing the red piece. 2. Use the fact that each piece can only be placed once. 3. Sometimes it's helpful to look at a square and ask what sort of piece covers it, rather than asking where a piece could go.

Shouldn't this read "unless the king starts doing...", or do you know of a solution where flipping pieces is disallowed.?

But modulo is such a nice word! Feh, you're right it should be unless. The solution is unqiue unless the king does something silly like paint the crown jewels.
