The best way that I have found to answer the "Leap Frog Test",

would be to do the following:

1. Give each rock that a frog sits on a number. Count the

numbers from left to right, using the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,


2. Then, you count the rocks so many numbers over;(using the

numerical formula below), and click on the frog sitting on top of


3. Example: First rock you'll click on is: Rock# 3 (click on


Then click on: Rock# 5 (click on Frog )

Then on... # 6 (click on Frog )

etc., etc., etc... # 4 (click on Frog )

  1. 2 (click on Frog )

  1. 1 (click on Frog )

  1. 3 (click on Frog )

  1. 5 (click on Frog )

  1. 7 (click on Frog )

  1. 6 (click on Frog )

  1. 4 (click on Frog )

  1. 2 (click on Frog )

  1. 3 (click on Frog )

  1. 5 (click on Frog )

  1. 4 (click on Frog )

I found a logic approach more understandable and useable.

I figured out that the secret is to avoid making a hop (move

one space) or a jump (leap over another frog) that will put 2 frogs

of the same color next to each other unless they are on the 3 end

rocks with no opposite color frog there. Also don't make a hop or a

jump that will force you to put 2 like color frogs together on the

next move. If you do get 2 frogs of the same color together outside

the 3 end spots you're sunk and might as well just push REINICIAR

to start over. Here is a set of moves that will work. Red is the

move. Blue is the explanation. Notations: G=green frog, B=brown

frog, 1=lead frog, 2=middle frog, 3=last frog J=jump, H=hop,


1. G1-H This means the lead green frog hops to the next rock.

The only other move is B1-H and that's an acceptable opening move


2. B1-J^G1 This means the lead brown frog jumps over the lead

green frog. The only other moves are G2-H & G3-J^G2 but those

would put frogs next to each other and that's a no-no.

3. B2-H A B3-J^B2 move would put B3 & B2 next to each

other and you're stuck. A G1-H move would force either a B2-J^G1 or

a G2-J^B1 move either of which puts 2 like colors together and

you're stuck.

4. G1-J^B2 A B3-H move puts 2 browns


5. G2-J^B1 A B2-H move again puts 2 browns together.

6. G3-H A B1-H forces a G3 or a B2 jump either of which puts

like colors together.

7. B1-J^G3 No other move is possible.

8. B2-J^G2 A G3-H puts 2 greens


9. B3-J^G1 A G2-H puts 2 greens together.

10. G1-H No other move is possible.

11. G2-J^B3 No other move is possible. This

move does put 2 greens together but they are on the end rocks with

no browns in the way.

12. G3-J^B2 A B3-H would put 2 browns


13. B2-H No other move is possible.

14. B3-J^G3 No other move is possible.

15. G1-H No other move is possible and this one

successfully completes the game, VOILA!

Now try it on your own
