The set of integers between 1 and 100 is turned into a directed graph with edges from i to i+1 for every i, and with a few additional edges too (not all of them pointing to a greater integer).

Other pages at my own web site you may find of interest:

- My home page is just a short introduction to the pages I maintain
- The parent page to this one is devoted to the analysis of other mathematical games (and the mathematical analysis of other games!).
- I keep a large set of pages which provide a thematic introduction to the subject areas of modern mathematics, complete with answers to thousands of more or less common questions.
