This game: http://www.zefrank.com/matches/

You have to move matches to make new squares. Usually I'm good at this sort of stuff, but I can't figure it out. I just tried the first two, but I really can't do it. And it doesn't have solutions, which bothers me, because I wanna know now. Is there anyone here who CAN do it?

That puzzle made my brain want to explode on my keyboard. I'm okay with puzzles like that but throw matches into the mix and I get lost.

I managed to get something with 4 squares, but they didn't have the right size, and I think they have to be?

I also don't know if it says something when you got it right, so I don't know.

Someone please solve this!

01-16-2006, 04:35 AM
It said 4 equal squares. It looks impossible to me given the number of matches.

01-16-2006, 04:36 AM
I know =/ And there's no solution either.

Maybe it's just a mean site trying to trick us all into trying something that's impossible?

01-16-2006, 04:38 AM
oh dear god, I already know I don't wantto play this game. & *certainly* not right before an exam.

Ken solved the first one!

So it is possible, and it tells you when you got it right.

I'm trying the second one now.

01-16-2006, 05:02 AM
I don't even get what you're supposed to do exactly..

01-16-2006, 05:20 AM
It says so at the bottom. The first one: move 2 matches, so you get 4 squares that are all the same size.

01-16-2006, 05:44 AM
Hint for the first one?

01-16-2006, 05:47 AM
One of the ones you have to move is the top middle one.

I still can't figure out the second. I'm so annoyed.

01-16-2006, 06:02 AM
Tsk tsk tsk, a Belgian had to solve it for you :p

01-16-2006, 06:03 AM
You have no idea how stupid that made me feel :(

01-16-2006, 06:04 AM
Hihihihihi :p

01-16-2006, 07:52 AM
what do they want it to look like? two giant big-ass squares, all little quares, what??!

seriously, I'm too postexam-braindead for this.

01-16-2006, 08:17 AM
ah, like that. let's see..

01-16-2006, 08:17 AM

No more hope for better days :(

01-16-2006, 08:20 AM
SHOW ME THE FIRST ONE CUZ I'M DUMB. grmblz. I have a post examic stress disorder.

01-16-2006, 08:23 AM
of course... I've rarely felt stupider.

01-16-2006, 08:29 AM
It looks so easy when you see the results. But it's so hard :( (I tried so hard!) And Ken is too smart for a Belgian!

01-16-2006, 08:30 AM
the third one was easy, but now I'm stuck on the fourth one. bwaah.

01-16-2006, 08:31 AM
Just wait for Mr Smartass to fix it in a few mins :p

01-16-2006, 08:33 AM
nevermind, I got it. stupid, I was close the whole time.

01-16-2006, 08:34 AM
I made it in the other direction. heehee.

now I'm having trouble with the fifth one.

01-16-2006, 08:41 AM
yeah, go ahead. I'm way too tired for this shit anyway. plus, I'm being too hasty & impatient, because I have to pack everything in boxes, because I'm going to move.

01-16-2006, 08:49 AM
uhm, Ken dear.. you may spoil the fun. officially. because I get frustrated when I leave & I still don't know where I should've put those matches.

also the one after that is an-noy-ing! ..I should cut it out..

I used help on two of those, but now I'm stuck on the one where you delete nine. Wtfing fuck?

01-16-2006, 11:36 AM
ah fuck, of course.

& deleting those nine.. is hell. I got stuck there too.

01-16-2006, 11:38 AM
Same here. I got it all cleared off quite a few times except for one 3x3 box that I keep missing. I'm pretty sure that's the last one because if you hit go to next it takes you back to the beginning.

01-16-2006, 11:45 AM
ooo, then I was pretty close all the time.

01-16-2006, 12:16 PM
the deleting nine is first one i had trouble with :\ so fucking annoying. just when i think ive got it, ive already used 9 :E

01-16-2006, 04:04 PM
Aww, there are only six? Those were fun. And yeah, that deleting nine one was pretty hard. They're only fun if you figure it out on your own, though!
