There is another more general way. That maybe can answer for many missing intersections.

I like your first method. It is easily programmable.

You mean labeling the vertices with the sums?

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

But there is a much nicer way that is probably quicker too!

I am being called away so I will show the method as soon as I get back.

Okay, no hurry. And if they threaten you, just ask yourself WWHD?

WWHD? Why Would Hay Decompose?

Now run

MatrixPower[A, 8][[1]]

the last entry means from 1 to 24, 38 ways.

It takes much londer if you have a larger grid. I'd say DP is better here.

The matrix can be filled by a program as the "Dice" guy does. Also it is a lot easier for a computer to do.

I'm not sure if getting the 8th piwer if a huge matrix is fast.

Hohohohohohohoo! That is a good one! I just talked to Mathematica and he said it sure is. Also there are ways to just get one element of that matrix!

What if you had a grid 100 by 100. You would need to get th 100th power of a 10201 by 10201 matrix!

There is an interesting little idea in Computer math that might help.

Then that is proof of ESP.

Were you also thinking about a big corned beef sandwich? No? Neither was I! Another amazing coincidence or...
