 2004-12-11, 21:41 #3 jinydu     Dec 2003 Hopefully Near M48 33368 Posts I'm starting to doubt its solvability. Basically, there's just no way to move the 2 and 3 out of the way. And 1 stubbornly clings to the top. This is the closest that I can get. Attached Thumbnails   Last fiddled with by jinydu on 2004-12-11 at 21:44
 2004-12-11, 21:56 #4 rogue     "Mark" Apr 2003 Between here and the 2·3·17·59 Posts I think it is solvable, I just haven't done it yet. I can get A to the other two corners and I can move 2 out of the way, but I am missing something to get it to that last corner.
 2004-12-11, 22:52 #5 Fusion_power     Aug 2003 Snicker, AL 25816 Posts Jinydu, It only takes 26 steps to get to the status you have achieved. Here are the steps: A, 1, 2, 3, 6 moves in L shape, 3, 2, 6, A, 4, 5, 7, 8 moves in L shape, 7, 5, 8, A, 6 moves in L shape, 2, 3, A, 8, 4, 6, 1 See if these steps help out any: A, 1, 2, 3, 6 moves in L shape, 3, 2, 6, A, 4, 5, 7, 8 moves in L shape, 7, 5, 8, A, 6 moves in L shape, 2, 3, A, 8, 5, 7, A, Fusion - its definitely solvable.
 2004-12-11, 23:35 #6 Fusion_power     Aug 2003 Snicker, AL 23·3·52 Posts Just for the fun of it, try these moves after you have completed the ones above. 8, 2, 1, 4, 6 moves in L shape, 2, 8 moves in L shape, 3, 1, 2, 6. Study this sequence carefully, its the key to winning. Fusion
 2004-12-12, 01:35 #7 jinydu     Dec 2003 Hopefully Near M48 2·3·293 Posts I went through that sequence before, but I thought I was farther from the solution because A is farther from its target position.

 2004-12-12, 17:33 #10 jinydu     Dec 2003 Hopefully Near M48 2·3·293 Posts Hmm, there are several typos there. In any case, it seems that once A touches the right side, everything is stuck.
