    That's pretty damn cool! We were taught to solve puzzles just like this in one of my classes, in fact there was a simiar problem on my exam last week.. This one is really difficult though, I cant seem to find a starting move that makes sense.. Tempted to just brute force it!

    Still working at it.

    Why do the parents bust their kids if the other one is not there to see it. Strange family.

    Tricky, but finished it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,118 ✭✭✭Trampas

    Got it.

    Nice arm punching when completed.

    A bit tricky at the end

    SPOILER:Start and end with the policeman and convict

    The puzzle solves itself, there are few choices to be made, at each stage there seems to be only one move.. (with one exception)

    Got it at last:D. Was about to give up when I spotted how to do the last few steps.

    Bah, I hate this puzzle. I takes me ages to do it and almost immediately, I forget how I did it and it takes me another age to figure it out again :(

    I actually found the first step the hardest. After that, no problems.

    It's easy enough once you remember to use the policeman! It's like the puzzle you were told as a child about the wolf on the raft.

    Kev you're great, thanks so much for that!!!! yes militant punching @ the end was great :)

    This was sent to me a while ago and it's a great puzzle. Tried doing it again there and it most likely took me the same amount of time to do as it did the first time. Seems impossible at times but I suppose all great puzzles do.....

    That wasn't so bad. The hardest part was getting started
