Short Problem Description

This was the Spring 1997 ... send email to and ask for all the details on the NEXT POTM ...

The deadline for entering was June 30th, 1997


You are blindfolded. You are in one corner of a rectangular room. Your opponent is in the opposite corner. Moving one square at a time, can you occupy your opponent's home square before your home square is captured??

Sound trivial?? Then consider adding radar, wall-building, and sleep-guns. Design a program that can play this game, win the elimination tournament, and gain POTM fame!
