Answer for red wins is following:
d7-d8 blue is forced a10-b10
d8-d9 blue is forced b10-c10
Now blue can move neither miner in c10 nor serg in e8
f7-e7 blue is forced i10-h10
e7-d7 blue is forced h10-g10
d7-d8 blue is forced g10-g9
d9-d10 blue is forced c10-d10
d8-d9 and blue cannot get the red miner before he reaches the flag!

I put it on the board. I overlooked something (won't spoil ;)) but it seems napoleon was right.

 

Looks like we'll have to give out some CP's (Clown Points) to those who said blue would end up victorious.

I actually had the right idea by trying to trade that miner, but I was thinking of retreating the miner from F9. Would be a win for blue if the miner on A10 was a sergeant ;)

Answer for red wins is following:
d7-d8 blue is forced a10-b10
d8-d9 blue is forced b10-c10
Now blue can move neither miner in c10 nor serg in e8
f7-e7 blue is forced i10-h10
e7-d7 blue is forced h10-g10
d7-d8 blue is forced g10-g9
d9-d10 blue is forced c10-d10
d8-d9 and blue cannot get the red miner before he reaches the flag!

 

Well done; this move sequence is indeed the correct answer to prove that red wins!

Quiz nr 2 by Maxroelofs - scouts

 

What's the maximum amount of scouts placed with every scout threatening one other scout. Remember every scout must threaten one other scout, not zero, not two, only one.

 

You are allowed to cut your strategoboard in two pieces in the quiz, just how you like it.

 

Goodluck!

I managed to place 18 scouts, each of which threatens exactly one other scout. I haven't been able to find a placement with 20. Anyone?


I hereby grant explicit permission to all my opponents to record and publish my games as they see fit.
