Red to move and win despite the material advantage of blue, Cactus variant. [13 plies]



Note:

The most challenging variant is the "Cactus variant", which was created by Eric Solomon.

This is a two-person variant. The players first place the 5 green kangaroos, alternately one by one. They are considered to be "cacti". Cacti don't move but can be jumped like ordinary kangaroos. Then the players place their own kangaroos, again one by one. After that play proceeds in the normal fashion.
