Maze of Life - an early collection of stable-states
An early set of stable-state goals uncovered by Carl Hoff
by manual exploration from Y-start on a 7x7 grid. A complete
set of all stable-state solutions achievable in 20 moves or less
(from Y-start) can be found here.
Normal stable-state goals
Ed Pegg christened the above goals Y-retirement homes
but really some of them are more prison like. Of the above goals
approx half are escapable and half are inescapable.
Escapable means the blue-cell can always move on and destroy
the goal, inescapable means the blue cell cannot move. Only one
of the above goals is half-and-half (it depends where the blue-cell
ends up). Can you spot this special case?
