My (fairly naive, single-threaded) code took about two and a half hours to do n=20, and it goes up by a factor of about 4 for each increase in n. By multithreading it I think I could do n=23 or even...

To help people check their answers without spoiling the puzzle, these were the last two digits of each of my values for n up to 20. 00, 01, 03, 11, 35, 08, 80, 48, 14, 23, 34, 49, 46, 37, 33, 34,...

One thing to watch out for is that I don't think the puzzle is using the standard wordle rules for repeated characters/digits. I think in the normal wordle rules, if a character is repeated, you...

The best I have so far are 102 and 159, but uau's post suggests <150 is possible for the starred problem. I found this...

It is possible to do it with a lot less computation - my single threaded C++ code took about 3.5s for n = 9, d = 7 and about 32s for n = 10,...

Actually, to check if my code is correct, could someone please check if they are able to verify one of my solutions for a largeish N? For example, for N = 345, I get (317, 335), (60, 169) as a 2...
