Problem #1

This month's problems arise from a recent question from the Gauss Contest.

An n×n grid consisting of the integers 1,2, ..., n2 is said to be "nice" if every entry except 1 and 2 can be written as the sum of two distinct numbers from adjacent squares (two squares are adjacent if they share an edge or a vertex).

No correct solutions have been submitted, to date.
