I have to put the mirrors at 1 and 2, otherwise the NW hydra will get stuck.

But then I can't prevent the SE hydra from turning N at 7.

I think I want to aim for the firetraps at 3, 4, 5, 6, but I can't reach all four at the same time.

square is the only one that doesn't lead to an instant game over. But that makes the SE hydra do a little detour, which sets up the conflict a few turns later.

And just like that, the H&S effect struck.

Edit:

demo playback is glitching in this hold. The hydras' animation comes out all wrong as long as the demo is on autoplay, the effect is most visible in the demo preview window. Strangely, as soon as I pause the demo and begin manually replaying the turns, hydra animation appears OK.
