icon Wolly Olly and the Adder : On the Surface : 1 North, 2 West (0)  
This one really has me stumped.
My calculations show all citizens are required, but I can not figure out how to get more than approx 90% in one run - this also results in the snake getting stuck.

Am I missing a simple trick or is this just next level advanced snake prediction? :)

It's a reasonable simple trick.

This was my original technique, but just can't get the snake in sync (seems the parity is out).

Thanks though - I'll keep trying. At least I know where to start now.

[EDIT]

Thanks that it... must have been the only combination I hadn't tried :) Cheers!

That is the thing I am still missing. I can't keep the adder from heading due N in the beginning. I am unable to take any steps until he exits. Sword pointing has no effect on him. I think I have been drinking too much snake venom and it has fried my brain.

Might a demo of how to time the adder entering in citizen chamber help?

Yeah, what I wrote was quite ambiguous - but I think I clarified it a bit now... :)
