comment Is my Fantasy YA series idea interesting and unique?
+1 for using other elements. I love the air-earth-fire-water concept, but it is way overused. Why not solid-liquid-gas-plasma for a change? Or the chinese earth-water-wind-metal-wood? Or something more innovative, like the forces of nature: Gravitational, Electromagnetic, Weak nuclear and Strong nuclear (or some interesting twist, like gravity-electricity-magnetism-nuclear)?

comment Can a grandmaster always draw?
I think @DM means when one player is deciding the championship against the other one (like Carlson and Caruana 12 games), not a championship with multiple players.

comment Swapping rooks in a 4x4 board
That's right. I solved the 3x3 in 14 moves without alternating the colors. I'm also curious about the 5x5 and 6x6 answers, but that's not in the scope of this question. Congratulations on finding the correct answer!

comment Swapping rooks in a 4x4 board
Yes, I thought about that. In a 3x3 board I was able to do in 14 moves, but I'm not sure if it is the optimal solution. I also don't think it would be a good idea to open a new question for a 3x3, 5x5, 8x8, etc.
