Fair enough, mon capitan, but that would be one loooonnng table ;P

 

Nice catch tho...I wasn't sure it you were allowed to move the boxes due to language differences and translation issues, etc :).

yes long, but looooooong is better than looooooooong squared. :-).

 

I didn't know whether the OP intended to accept my proposal, either. But I was offended by the large amount of wasted real estate, so I thought I'd point out the elegance of the solution that you folks arrived at--each person (but the first) can immediately know the proper location of their own piece. And the last knows what to do with the first. The additional dimension is not needed for the logic of the solution, aside from preserving the arrival order.

 

Nice job, all!

Yes, it is indeed an elegant solution, but unfortunately out of those 100 ppl the first 99 are germaphobes and refuse to touch the box that someone else has touched without sterilizing it first :P

 

Just kidding...I guess we'll have to wait to hear from wolfgang whether moving the boxes are allowed :).
