    Cat Trap Game

    This is something that is very frustrating and highly entertaining. What it is is a game of hexigons to which only the yellow ones are open. The reds are borders and there is a black figure in the center resembling a cat.

    What you must do is click one of the yellow hex's which turns it into a barrier and the cat will move once after every click. You must trap the cat in a circle to prevent it from moving off the board.

    GOP and Trump supporters will not be able to say they didn't know. Vote in numbers too big to manipulate.

    Yes, but it takes a while.

    Twice. But it is like Master Of Orion. Starting points are key. If they are unfavourable you lost before you start.

    I FUCKING LOVE THIS GAME AND WILL TEST IT ON MY OWN CAT.

    I've solved it a few consecutive times now. I think you can win no matter the starting position. The key is to wall off as far away from the cat as possible so that the cat isn't constantly forcing your next move, and you aren't forcing its next move. And don't wall of all at once: leave gaps in your wall and only close them if the cat gets within one space if them.

    Solved it on my second try but used bigfield's advice. I'm sure I could waste hours playing it, got other stuff to do today.

    That cat is infuriating. I do remember being able to succeed but I don't have the time to figure it out again.

    Caught him. Unfortunately it fades out and doesn't give time to grab a screenshot.

    Tried again, snapped before the end:
