2. Visit each cell exactly once by jumping to a cell in the same row or sloping diagonal as the current cell.

3. Each jump must follow the pattern rock → scissors → paper → rock, until you end on a rock.

4.The jumps must never reverse direction, though you may jump over a cell multiple times.

Number each cell from 1 to 10 as you traverse the pattern. An example is shown below.
