Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

You need to switch the silver necklace over to the left side and the gold necklace over to the right.

Did you notice there are two empty slots to work with? This should make things fairly easy. If you keep moving those blocks around, you'll see!

Unlike most of the slide puzzles you've probably seen, this one has two empty slots. If you take advantage of them both, switching the necklaces is actually pretty simple.

The key is to not worry about the position of the individual pieces but rather to simply switch all the blocks of each necklace to the opposite side.

After you've done that, you can deal with reassembling each necklace.

Give it another try. You can do it! Even if you decide to use the Super Hint, we won't tell you exactly how to solve it...

You couldn't resist, could you? OK, then.

Switching the necklaces around is easy if you utilize both of the open spaces. If you keep the two open spaces above, below, or on the side of the two blocks you want to reposition, you should have no problem maneuvering them around one another. Give it a try, you'll see!


Solution

Correct

Fantabulous job!

US Version

Unlike most of the slide puzzles you've probably seen, this one has two empty spaces. So it's not too tough, yeah?

By the way, where did these necklaces come from? Does anybody know? Or might they be...stolen?!

UK Version

Square-shaped slide puzzles like this usually have 15 blocks and only one empty space. This one, however, has two empty spaces, so it couldn't have been that hard for you!
