They've credited me with the solving the bonus challenge and I didn't check to see how many moves it would take to solve it from either my initial solution or my much improved (as in smaller total amount added) solution.
I am trying to say that: they should have limited the number of moves, because it is really very easy to find a solution once the number of moves is unlimited, as it is already easy with limited number of moves.
