Puzzle assistance

Leaves Separator  This is a Sliding Block puzzle

  • Begin by choosing a difficulty level from the bottom menu bar. The 3x3 puzzle is quite easy. The 9x9 is challenging. Take your pick.
  • Click on the Shuffle button one or more times to scramble the tile order and reset the puzzle statistics. (Be careful - clicking a Difficulty level NxN choice during play will also reset the puzzle.)
  • Until you get familiar with the picture, click the Numbers button to assist recognition. Use this button at any time to toggle the identifiers.
  • The Original button serves as a reminder of the target picture. Click it again to continue with the puzzle.
  • Click on an adjacent tile to move it into the empty slot. Continue until all tiles are back into their original sequence.
  • Success will be signalled by activation of the Reward tab. Click on that tab to initiate the Blue Ball "email transfer mechanism."

Monthly Prize Draw

Leaves Separator  Puzzle lottery - your chance to win a book.

Complete the puzzle using Level 5 or higher, enjoy your Reward, then use the Contact button on the Main menu.

Remember that clicking on Contact will reset the puzzle, so make a note of your completion values before using it, or right-click the button for a menu and select "Open Link in New Tab".

Tell me the level you completed, and how many moves it took. The time taken to solve the puzzle isn't important; there's no need to rush.

Example: "I finished Level 9, using 1,234 moves."

Please put "Puzzle lottery" as the Subject, and it's one message for each separate completion. All entries go into a single monthly random draw.
