I've been on that same drawing board for quite a length of time now, as you can see with the proof I came up with for a total of 20. Because of what was pointed out about "Ramsey's Theorem", I can somewhat buy into the idea that it can indeed be shown to be true among a group of 18 -- but I'm at a complete loss as to why this is the case...
