Puzzle

US Version

The garden at Barde Manor has grown so thick that it's nearly impassible! Fortunately, a sign tells you how to navigate your way through it.

It reads:
"Walk on every square in the garden only once, going in numerical order from 1 to 8."

Can you get to the goal from one of the starting points?

There may be four entrances, but there is only one exit. Try working backward from the exit. That may help you figure out where you should start.

There may be four entrances, but there is only one exit.

Try working backwards from the exit. That may help you work out where you should start.

US Version

When working from the exit, you'll need to complete each series backward from 8 to 1.

You'll need to step on every square in the garden, but you can't step on one twice.

As you work backward from the exit, if you find yourself in a dead end of options, back up until you find another branch.
