Question on algorism

Recently I read this blog post. How to Develop an iPad Board Game App

I'd like to test 'moveSurroundsCountersForColumn' function, and the question is how I should test this code.

I could test the specific situation like this,

-(void)test_moveSurroundsCountersForColumn {
    // no surroundings
    for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++) {
        BOOL canMoveSurrounds = [board moveSurroundsCountersForColumn:0 andRow:0 withNavigationFunction:_boardNavigationFunction[i] toState:BoardCellStateBlackPiece];
        STAssertEquals(canMoveSurrounds, NO, @"Cannot move");

but I don't know how I can test every possible situation, and prove that is true.

Does anyone know good resources to solve the problem like this? Any suggestions?

@Furniya you might be better off asking this question in the comments section of that blog post. So that you can get a reply from the author himself.
