: I have noticed that the checksheet is based on Mr. McQuain's logs. I have also noticed that in Mr. McQuain's logs, his grendels eat creatures that come into the square after them. This is contrary to the spec.
: I was wondering why we should loose points on the demo, if our program outputed correctly, while Mr. McQuain's didn't.
I believe that the grendels are eating the other creatures in the square at the begining of the next tick. That is, if grendel is in a square and a grazer then enters the square, the grazer will not be eaten on that tick. On the next the next tick, if the grendel doesn't move, the grendel will move zero spaces (not move) and then eat whatever is in the square, i.e. the grazer.
