I am no longer supporting this problem. No changes will be made to put more entries in the test suite, but have fun playing anyways!
Steal, Share, or Catch is explained in the link.
This problem is the "Tournament of Champions". If you make a passing entry in the original, from time to time I will move entries over to this Cody problem. You will no longer be playing against only easy characters:
You will face
Exploiter recognizes the strategies of many of the above characters, and plays well against them.
Is this cheating? Maybe, but security through obscurity is questionable! Take a look at Exploiter, it is the reference solution to this problem.
I will update the test suite and cast of characters and winning score as we go. I will try to keep making the test suite tougher so that only one/two entries can pass it at any given time. It will be a matter of beating the test score more than getting lowest complexity!
If you made something and want to see it here, just call my attention to it.
Winner is determined by score, not by length. As of 6/28/2012 on my machine Amro is the current winner at 136K!
