The Fifteen Steps (Posted on 2004-04-26) Difficulty: 5 of 5
There are 15 stairs arranged in a line. There are 6 people on various different steps.

The only rule is you can only move a person if you move it to any lower vacant stair.

In a two player game, you alternate moving single people. The last one to move a person wins! What strategy should you use in order to win?

What strategy would be used if the people couldn't pass each other when moving down the stairs?
