### Stabilise [GAME]

Given a random fill, stabilize it (i.e. into a xq, xp, or xs.)

Rules:
- Removing a cell will be penalized 32 points.
- Adding a cell will be penalized 1 point.
- Minimum points wins.
- Please don't use LLS/WLS/JLS/etc, let's practice by hand ;]

First puzzle and my 54-point solution:

Code: Select all

x = 41, y = 10, rule = LifeHistory
37.E.2E$33.E.3E.2E$3.2A28.2E$3A.A31.2A.2E$.A2.A.A26.3A.A.E$.2A30.ED2. A.A$34.2AE.E$37.E$34.3E$34.E!  Another puzzle and my 68-point solution: Code: Select all x = 41, y = 10, rule = LifeHistory 2$3.A32.A$2.A.A30.A.A$.A.A30.A.A$.A32.A$2.A.A30.A.D$3.2A31.AD$35.2E!

In particular, is the 2nd puzzle solvable without removing 2 cells?

EDIT: Yaaaas 48

Code: Select all

x = 41, y = 9, rule = LifeHistory
32.2E$2.A29.E.E3.A$.A.A30.E2.A.A$A.A30.2E.A.A$A31.E3.A$.A.A29.3E.A.D$

But this allows for denser starting patterns and the coolout conjecture is irrelevant.

The penalty for taking away cells is way too large. I would suggest 8 instead of 32, which discourages go-for-the-stabilization-no-matter-how-ugly-it-is situations.
