Ricochet Robots, Game 1, Round 14

Posted by Don B on 25 April, 2020 6 comments

If you want to know how to participate in this low-tech online game of Ricochet Robots, see the original blog post here.

Standings for round 14: 
Dave 5 tokens
Gavin 4 tokens
Alison 2 tokens
Charlotte 1 token
Alan 1 token
Everyone else 0 tokens.

When I pulled the first token it was immediately obvious it would be too easy so I pulled a second token. Much more challenging. The red robot must visit both tokens in sequence. 

Post your bid for the number of moves in the comments below before 5:30pm, Sunday 26th April 2020. You can submit your solution as a separate comment at any time before the 5:45pm deadline. You can also update your solution prior to 5:45pm and I will use the last submitted solution.

    Priority order is Alison, Gavin David. Since Alison has already submitted a viable solution for 13 moves. She wins the two tokens for round 14.
