Hello, I would like to point out the fact that Player 2 seems to have a big advantage since he has the last move, and therefore almost always ends up winning. I think either the games should be mirrored, so each player gets a game as p1 and a game as p2, or the moves should be simultaneous.

Hi, i think Hoyer seems to be right. Do you have the stats of win/loss for 1st/2nd player.
Can you accpet that the last move (or all) is (are) played at “x” manathan distance of the center of the map?

Thx for the contest. It is really fun!

Hello ! Thank you for this puzzle ! I like it much much !!!

Why are there only wood leagues, for 25 points ? It is much harder than easy training puzzles, that are 50 points I think !
I’m afraid people won’t work on this wonderful puzzle if they can get only 25 points each league !

Thank you again for this puzzle !
