> > > I once had the best Brackly Hall finish at 236 moves and thought the game's complexity was manageable enough that I'd reached the minimum. By now it's apparent that I must have missed multiple ideas/observations to shave off moves. I highly doubt I even have the best possible counts for the games *I* authored. (Though someone got within 1 move of me in Perils of Akumos, so it's possible.)

If at some point you want to try for the minimum for another game, I do know for sure that the "Game of the Ages" record can be broken, because I have the current low, and during that game I realized I could have eliminated 2 moves, but I never went back to try again.

Well just talking to you gave me an idea and I shaved off 1 move so now I'm at 227. I still have two more moves to shave off to tie with the current low score. It's true that you can solve the game by going in the house at most 3 times, but I found I could save that one move by making 4 trips into the house.
