A MESS OF TOKENS

While wandering in the forest one day, you are captured by a strange tribe of native folk, and they do not have the best things in mind for you.

[hide]I will first turn one token upside down. That way at least I won't have to divide an odd number into two halves. I then have 138 or 136 blues, dependinc on if I made a blue red or a red blue. I might also count all the tokens by moving tokens to a separate space in the tent. I would then have no option, but to divide the two groups equally, by moving half of the tokens back to the first space, and hope that I get it right.[/hide]

[hide]I'll put all the tokens together and be careful not to turn them around...then since there are 137 blue sides showing, I'll turn ONE of the tokens around and then I'll have 136 blue sides showing and then I'll put 68 tokens on each side and the one showing red can go either side. This way, both sides will have equal number of blue sides showing... :)[/hide]

That won't work.

[hide]You don't know which ones are blue to begin with, so you can't put 68 on either side, nor choose to turn a single blue one over.[/hide]
