Can you tile a chessboard with two missing squares?
If you remove two opposite corners of a chessboard, can you still tile it with 2 x 1 rectangles?
In other words, looking at the image above, can you cover the whole chessboard with 2 x 1 domino tiles, except for the top-left and bottom-right corners?
