A method to construct a tour is Warnsdorff's heuristic together with a
tie-break rule. The knight's tour Wikipedia page
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knight%27s_tour#Warnsdorff's_rule gives a
link to an article by Squirrel and Cull
. Their variant of Warnsdorff's method seems to be deterministic and to
guarantee non-trapping even for very large boards, but I can't see if it is
the one applied in the 8 sequences.
