Depends on the side you are choosing technical or just hypothetical because technical there are none on most because of basic human error

Do you get it? Four squares put together in a square form counts as a square. The whole board is a square too. Do you understand what I'm getting at?

20? Really? But can't you make squares with other squares. Like the whole board is a square. Four different squares can make one square...Do you get it?
