Puzzle

US Version

Seven gold coins make up a circle.

Moving only one coin, arrange them so there are an equal number of heads-up coins as there are tails-up coins.

Use the stylus to move just one coin. Tap a coin to flip it over.

Think you can make heads or tails of the situation?

UK Version

Here are seven gold coins. You can flip the coins over by touching them.

By touching just one coin, can you arrange them so that the number of heads is equal to the number of tails?

US Version

Go ahead and play with the coins. You can move any coin around as much as you like.

UK Version

Handle the coins as much as you like.

It could give you some ideas.

US Version

You can move or flip a coin over as much as you want. However, since you have a total of seven coins, there will never be an even number of heads and tails.

It'll take more than a coin toss to determine the solution to this puzzle.

UK Version

There are seven gold coins in total, so no matter how many times you flip them, there will never be an even number of each.

You'll have to do more than toss a coin to solve this puzzle!

US Version

There are more heads-up coins than there are tails-up coins. You can nearly even the field by flipping over one of the heads-up coins.

What else could you do with that flipped coin?

UK Version

There are definitely more heads than tails, so you need to flip one of them over to make four heads and three tails. But, what else could you do with the flipped coin?

US Version

Even if you flip a coin over to make four heads and three tails, you still need to make a head disappear.

You are only allowed to flip one coin, but there isn't any rule about using that coin to cover up one of the others...

UK Version

Even if you flip a coin over to make four heads and three tails, you still need to make a head disappear. You are only allowed to flip one coin, but how about also using it to cover one of the others?
