    Very easy, but also very, very, very elegant and nice!

    (Also, is it sad that the number 186 reminds me of many years back, when I discovered that Politoed’s number in the National Pokédex, 186, is exactly thrice that of Poliwrath, 62, and both are evolutions of the same Pokémon?)

    1. One should typically expect Monday to be very easy. Glad to hear you enjoyed it as well.

    2. Yes, it is sad. 😛

    Just getting to this one. Keep getting immediate contradictions. I thought the “path” had to have only two “ends.” Is it in fact a path with many dead ends that jut out of it along the way?

    Thx.

      Having solved this with ease, I can assure you that the path has only two ends — otherwise, any polyomino could be a “path”.

      Perhaps you’re making assumptions about the 14’s.

    Mathgrant, thx for the assist.

    My problem was that I failed to appreciate (and a rule clarification may be in order) that that the “path” can touch itself, run parallel to itself, etc. Duly noted for next time.

    Thanks for a thought provoker while I figured things out.
