## Hints

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

This puzzle is difficult, but as long as you aren't repeating the same moves over and over, you'll eventually extricate the red block.

Now stop depending on hints and go try it for yourself.

This puzzle takes at least 81 moves to solve. There aren't really any good hints to give, but here's a little trick that might help you.

There are two open spaces in the box. As you slide pieces around, make sure you don't separate one open space from the other.

As stated in Hint One, you're just going to have to work this puzzle out yourself.

However, it seems wrong to give you nothing for that hint coin you spent, so here's a factoid about the puzzle you're solving. In Japan, these types of puzzles have been around for hundreds of years.
