These are problems relating to various games and strategies for playing them.

Euler's 36 officers problem has been in the news recently, following the passing of the last of 'Euler's Spoilers'.

It notoriously has no solution for the 6x6 square with 6 officers (colonel, lieutenant-colonel, major, captain, lieutenant, and sub-lieutenant) and 6 regiments.

One possible modification, while still keeping 6 regiments, would be to allow substitution of a junior officer (or officers) in one or more of the regiments by a new rank - say, Sensitivity Counsellor, or SC - more reflective of the needs and aspirations of a modern-day military.

What is the minimum number of SC's needed to make the problem solvable?
