Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The shape you're moving the letters around in is completely symmetrical, and there are only two blocks in the way, so you should be able to solve this puzzle with a regular, systematic series of moves.

You can start over as many times as you want, so think about the most efficient way to move the letters into place and see what works.

You'll run out of moves if you try to maneuver the letters into place one by one. Think about how you can rotate all of the letters into position while making you moves.

Here's part of the solution:

Move the lower blue stone over to the right, and slide the C all the way down. Now move the upper blue stone into the A slot, and slide the D all the way left...

Can you figure out the pattern now?

Continuing on from Hint Three, put the lower blue stone into the B slot and move the A all the way up. Now you can slide the C into its slot. Then slide the B all the way right, and you can slide the D into its slot.

You're halfway done! And the rest looks pretty easy, right?


Solution

Correct
