A fairly simple puzzle. My approach was to add up the strings together and use regular expressions to replace special characters with a * character so that the python len function would provide me with the correct result.

    I got the same answer with part one with my code and yours. (1350)
    For part two my code gave me 1215 and your code gave me 2087, but aoc says both are wrong.
