New Challenge: The ultimate perfection

Postby Caribou99 on Sat Aug 09, 2008 12:24 pm

Hello,
I propose a new challenge: "The ultimate perfection".
For this, two contraints:
1. the solution shall use the fewest number of pieces,
2. the victory piece shall stay (eternally) in the goal area but not on borders.

Some solutions of the 'Simplest Solutions' challenge challenge are suited to this challenge.

I made some minor tweaks to someone else's elegant design called the "get wheel" and managed to reach a "perfect" result:

(The real credit should go to the original "Get Wheel" designer, though, for coming up with such an effective and simple solution.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=358209 - Defeats the purpose of the level, though. Dunno if we should count it. ;)

It's OK.

So, if someone wants to write the rules in good English, it's great!

It's not OK! The red balls must be kept (eternally) in the goal area.

Sorry for my bad english. So, the rules are probably not clear.
