Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

You can solve this puzzle in 18 moves.

First, slide the yellow section to the top right, and then slide blocks that are shaped like the letter "L" into the resulting gap.

The next piece to move is the clock.

Continuing from Hint 1, make sure the clock is against the left edge, then slide the smaller L block up next to it.

Looks a bit tidier now, doesn't it? The next few moves are tricky, though.

Continuing from Hint 2:
1. Move the inverse "T" shaped block to the far right of the second row of the bottom.
2. Move the yellow piece above the T shaped block, then slide the two L shaped blocks into the now vacant top-right space.
3. Move the clock into the top left corner and slot the small L block in the open space.
4. Move the yellow piece to the left edge of the third row from the bottom.

US Version

You're almost there!

UK Version

You're nearly there!

Continuing from Hint 3:
1. Move the small L shaped block down one row.
2. Move the bottom L shaped block one column left.
3. Move the T shaped block into the small gap created by the last move.
4. Move the yellow piece all the way to the right.

Now if you move the dark blue zig-zag piece out of the way, you can slot the yellow piece into place.
