I'm on the computer a little later than usual, so I thought I'd get the post for tomorrow up now so I don't have to do it in the morning, since it's past midnight on the East coast anyway.
Oh my gosh, today’s puzzle is a parsing, dependency graph nightmare. Maybe I'm just tired and overcomplicating things in my head, but I'm thinking that's the case. Our input is a series of lines describing how certain colors of bag (e.g. "vivid plum") can contain certain quantities of other bags (e.g. "shiny gold"). We are to decide which bags can contain our bag, the shiny gold one. Yoy.
As always, this is the spot where I’ll plug any leaderboard codes shared from the community.

If you want to generate your own leaderboard and signal boost it a little bit, send it to me either in a DEV message or in a comment on one of these posts and I'll add it to the list above.
