I can't see which statement should span to more lines

Seeing as you have

foreach(@moves) { if(my $finalPos = inRange($moved_to, $_))
for my $i (0..$N-1)  { $board[$i][$_] = init($i,$_) for (0..$N-1);},
I'd say you do.

Since all "more lines" statements in Perl are conventions, you could just as well mash all into a one long line and claim yourself the winner. Regardless of anything, counting SLOC in Python have an actual meaning, since the syntax is forcing itself on your style. In Perl, every GNU-style coding is just a K&R away from 30% "improvement".
