It was only sixteen,
Only sixteen, but it bugged you so,
It was too hard, really too hard, but I didn't know.

It will never happen again.
I wrote the quiz a month ago,
But I've aged a year since then.


It seems my assumption, that the problems were similar enough that from the answers, and a bit of thought, all would be revealed, was wrong. The positions from last month are repeated for convenience, and the discussion follows.

All problems are money games, Black on roll, owning the cube.
