I don't think you can do that second move, so I'm going to just count your first one. But yeah, I've been trying to screw up the palindrome too ever since the other guys made it evident that they were going to try to keep it going as long as possible. Actually I just stopped posting here for a while because I thought it made the thread kinda boring but at least, that last post I did. :mrgreen:

There's my last double move for this page. (Even though I'm pretty sure I have my settings more than the normal amount of posts per page I won't use it again. ;))

What are the rules for two moves then? They confuse me.

You didn't break the rule for double moves, sorry I should have been clearer, but on that one the rule is you can only do it twice per page. You broke the rules by trying to decrement digits -- you can only increment them.

Palindrome! Now it's time to make it a repdigit. I'm thinking all ones.

Edit: didn't read your whole post apparently. actually, all ones will take (11-4)*2 + (11-2)*4 = 50 turns while
all fours will take (4-1)*6 + (4-2)*4 = 26 turns.
besides, we can keep it palindrome while we get there.

I agree. However, for want of a nail, the war was lost. all ones could be the next milestone.

Okay, but a 2-repdigit is probably best for now.
