A number theory one move game set in jail, February 13, 2016

As a mathematician, I was excited by a one move game set in jail (a frequent location for logic puzzles) with a strong number theory puzzle.

I immediately pulled out my number theory techniques, trying to remember the difference in the tau function between powers of primes and other numbers.

Then I found the solution, and I was embarassed.

It was a fun ten minutes.

It can be neat and amusing to be fooled by simplicity sometimes.

I'd seen it, becasue I was quite mathy in high school & loved me some Raymond Smullyan and Martin Gardner, but I still enjoyed the narrative on top of it, and I think it's a good puzzle.

I also like that it can be solved empirically & maybe that can hint the player to what is going on.
