Puzzle

US Version

You begin assembling a catapult from the pieces, but it isn't clear how the parts fit together.

Part A will be placed exactly as shown below, with no rotation. But how do the other parts fit in? Any of those can be rotated.

When you have the answer, draw a line from the circle beside parts B, C, and D to the corresponding X in the diagram.

US Version

Look at the top edge of each part. Each one has a bit that sticks out. These bits will bump against each other if they are not put together correctly.

You need to figure out how to fit the pieces together so the jutting bits don't collide.

Part D can only be joined to the others from above.

US Version

Though part D can be rotated in various ways, it generally joins with part A in a way that should help you envision what space is left for parts B and C.

UK Version

Though part D can be rotated in various ways, the general way that it slots into part A should help you envision what space is left for parts B and C.

Parts A and B both have a protruding row that is four squares wide, so there is only one way these two parts can meet. They must face each other.
