  1. Amoeba evacuation puzzle

    Looks like I misunderstood the initial configuration. I assumed the x's were already amoeba and not just space to vacate.

    Yay for integer sequences (found using your 19355 )...

  5. A Challenged Flight Deck

    I think the bit debt idea will always have situations that produce contradictions, so I'm thinking it should be discarded. I looked over plainglazed's 38, and I think it works. Nice. Edit: I got another 38. It's slightly more complicated (1 more branch needed), but is based on yours, so I won't bother posting it. It uses 6of8's and 5of8's in combinations instead of groups of 5's in a bigger group of 20.

    Example 2 shows that this method does not work as I thought it did, since I reached a contradiction. So back to the drawing board... hopefully something from this can be salvaged. I think it may still work, but that I can't 'borrow' quite as many bits as I thought. I think there needs to be a 1 bit buffer at all times. Hopefully that solves the issue, but I'll need to look into it.

    So, after reading your post and looking at the fewest for 3 again. I thought of one configuration to try. Since testing a configuration with my code is fast, I threw it into my code and...

    I've got a strategy that gets 38 (or more) on 99.8% of decks, and needs one more bit on the rest... one bit... grr. Edit: Hey... 500th post! v v v v doesn't work Edit 2: I got a strategy that guarantees 38. I'm going to flush out this idea before posting (hoping I can get 39).
