SWI-Prolog, 62 47 41 bytes X*Y:-X+Y;Y+X;X==Y. X?Y:-not(X*Y),X*Z,Y*Z. Prolog isn't too often useful, but when it is it's just beautiful. We'll use a+b to notate that a is friends with b, a*b that a knows b and a?b that b should be suggested to a or not. The first line simply says that X*Y is true if either X+Y, Y+X or X == Y is true. This implements the ...

Deadfish, 18 This was actually the first language I tried before I considered infix operators. I'm posting it now for the sheer hilarity of the idea that Deadfish could be useful for something. iii ios sii For those who don't know Deadfish, i is increment, s is square and o is output, with the accumulator starting at 0 (there's also a 4th instruction d ...

PARI/GP - 24 1%1 8 2+3 PARI/GP ignores spaces between digits, so that 1 8 2, for example is treated as 182. The same could work for perl by replacing the spaces with underscores. I haven't exhausted the entire search space, so there may be better candidates. A program can be fed to gp as gp -q -f program.gp, or interactively in the repl. Output 1%1 8 2+...

Python REPL and many more, 22 23 6+7 *5% 6%4 Key observation: If you colour the grid like a checkerboard, the path alternates grid colours as it goes and starts and ends on the same colour. Still brute forcing for better. Trying with +*% (and even ** for languages where ^ is exponentiation) didn't turn up anything better, unfortunately. I also tried ...

JavaScript (ES6), 30 bytes Takes input as (N)(M). N=>g=M=>M>N?M%2-~g(M+1>>1):N-M Try it online! How? Instead of going from $N$ to $M$, we go from $M$ to $N$. While $M$ is greater than $N$: if $M$ is odd, increment it and divide it by $2$ (2 operations) if $M$ is even, just divide it by $2$ (1 operation) When $M$ is ...

C# - 423 375 bytes Complete C# program, accepts input via STDIN, outputs "True" or "False" to STDOUT as appropriate. I could not bare to leave that Linq in there... thankfully its removal paid off! It now keeps track of seen and visited cells in an array (given it only ever looks at a finite number of them anyway). I also re-wrote the directional code, ...

Wolfram Language (Mathematica), 26 25 bytes Tr[#//.x_:>#.#.Clip@x]<1& Try it online! How it works Given an adjacency matrix A, we find the fixed point of starting with B=A and then replacing B by A2B, occasionally clipping values larger than 1 to 1. The kth step of this process is equivalent up to the Clip to finding powers A2k+1, in which the (...

Python3 with numpy, scipy and matplotlib edit: I tried to keep the groups in the same relative position between events, hence the sorted_event function. New function to calculate the y position of the characters (coords). Every alive event is plotted two times now, so the characters stick together better. Added legend and removed axes label. import math ...

7 5 vertices, 14 10 edges (Graph made with this online tool and paint.) A-F are our six nodes, and J is a helper node. The three 1-nodes enforce that opposite nodes are different, while the 2-node makes sure that A, C and E can neither be all mines, nor all empty. Edit: -2 vertices thanks to CalculatorFeline and H.PWiz!

Python, 31 bytes lambda l:sum(n%2for n in l)|2<3 Try it online! We use k|2<3 to check that k is either 0 or 2. This works because the bit operation |2 sets the bit for place-value 2, so to get a result that's 2 or less, there must be no other bits set.
