This is how the blocks are arranged at the start of the game:
Your goal is to re-arrange them to look like this:
For your first move,
If you click on the block with the "S" it will move down into the empty space. If, instead, you click on the block with the "X", it will move to the right into the empty space. If, instead, you click on the block with "LIF" on it, all of the blocks, "LIF", "A" and "X" will move to the right towards the empty space. Clicking on the Book would move all of the blocks on the bottom row to the right into the empty space.
Other blocks can be moved in a similar fashion as long as they are in the same row or column as the empty space. (Obviously, the three large pieces can only be moved left or right.)
Each click counts as one move, even if you move more than one block.
The puzzle can be solved in 76 moves (or maybe fewer).
Click on "Start New Game" if you won and the game is over or if you give up and want to try again from the start.
