Tricky! I had to look it up to even see which color is supposed to go first...so then I got it wrong because I had read into the question a line which doesn't exist, saying that only one move has taken place. Long story short: I fell for it!

I remembered this problem from The Mysterious Benedict Society. I remember really enjoying it then and now.
