The Quantum Locker Puzzle

This looks pretty cool.  One of the neatest parts is that they consider the case of a cheating referee!  The parallelism here is reminiscent of that in Quantum Tic-Tac-Toe though there is not necessarily any entanglement as there is in the latter case (superpositions do not necessarily imply entanglement!).  Actually it’s a pretty straightforward application of Grover’s algorithm but has a pretty wild conclusion in the optimized case.
