You're right indeed, but only if he jumps on turn no.336.
It's difficult to see open spaces in the middle.

I'm still a little confused about the rules for bumping and jumping, but to me it looks like Mikko can get a lot higher than 346.

Okay, my bad. I looked at it again and realized I had jumped a wall, which you can't do, in my calculation. Sorry for any high hopes. Like I said, I'm a little confused about this.

So now Mikko is committed to dying on turn 342.

it IS possible that Trick dies on turn no. 347. Let just say there is a high possibility.

Really? I would put that possibility at zero.

He can choose several paths that will lead to an inevitable death, but quite a few turns out.

What am I missing?

Because Ostegolectr1c didn't jumped, Trick will survive.

I can't see what difference Ostegolectr1c's bump made for Trick's survival. Were you thinking Ostegolectr1c could jump to the left in the next turn? He couldn't.

Yeah, I wouldn't have been dead if Ostegolectr1c had jumped. In fact, I could have forced myself to second place, with Ostegolectr1c probably ending up at 4th. Unfortunately I think he'll probably end up at 4th anyway, unless I commit suicide .. Scratch that

I've completed the final revision of the list of Dead Snakes, in anticipation of trick's unavoidable death on turn 401.

michthro is ranked as the #1 dead snake, although I haven't listed an explicit turn for him, thus carefully skirting the metaphysical questions as to whether a lone snake coiling still dies if there's nobody around to observe it.

Congratulations to Ostegolectr1c (3rd place), trick (2nd place) and michthro (1st place).

Also congrats to all snakes! It takes guts to step into an arena with 42 other snakes, knowing that only one will make it out alive. And possibly not even one.

Nope. I'm planning to hang around until turn 528. I'm feeling lonely, but not suicidally so. :)

Well, I just keep bumping until turn 516. On turn 494 I'll jump up, then turn right, then u-turn. Maybe you're missing that empty square at (29,99)?

Whoa, he can lose almost 100 turns if he jumps, can he?

Umm.. If that's directed at me, well, I can achieve what everyone who solved all sorts of non-required snake puzzles achieved. The game is still running, there is a little puzzle to solve, so why shouldn't I?
