Err...desolee, mon capitaine...

Spoiler for Sorry...I sank your ship...


Edit: And I don't think you need the 13th test either? You don't need to get a 'hot' to figure out which it is, you can assume the last group is 'hot' by the process of elimination.

And so it remains a team effort. But your arrangement wins by one test, I believe.
Your 13th test distinguishes the last pair, so no 14th test, agreed.

My 13th test distinguishes my only pair, so no 14th test. Unfortunately, my 12th test touches 3, so it takes two more to find which one for sure.

This is why your solution ending in 3 pairs is better than mine, ending in a trio and a pair.

Good job, Y-san. Hontoo ni utsukushii desu!

right on - had a minor brainurism when first reading Y-san's solution. couldn't quite visualize her layout and quickly accepted her claim for fourteen. my solution for thirteen is similar in concept but slightly different in layout.

Spoiler for WIW and since i spent some time on the drawing


good work you two. thanks for playing
