    Hello

    I'm building some client side JavaScript applications, one of these is a missing piece puzzle. There is one bug that I am aware of, where one piece may move over another, but this doesn't happen untill you have been playing for ages.

    I'm trying to test the win condition, but haven't yet managed to complete it

    Anyone with some spare time, or just some boredom, wanna have a go?

    Well, it said I was a winner, but as you can see, I wasn't. It took me 945 moves and I still didn't get it quite right.

    Cheers for that Creole

    LOL

    I think, i'm gonna have to work on the win detection :O)

    It occured to me the other day that it may be possible to scramble the pieces in such a way that you can never win.

    In case you were wondering the pic was taken outside my house in Sheffield in February, didn't notice the car crash till i got the pic on my comp tho

    no...

    with that type of puzzle, you can always win.

    My recommendation would be to lessen the number of squares in the puzzle. I took me so long that if I wasn't testing I would have quit long before I got close to winning...unless i was really bored.
