I would not have figured that out if my life depended on it. ( but it would probably help if I played chess

I'm not a chess whiz or a cheese whiz but if you put a queen at each of the four corners, you leave four positions unthreatened around the middle. You could then place the 5th queen..err..maybe I am a cheese whiz .. nice puzzle!
