Nearest I could get was getting a 2 to the matcher - fivyrex. It's all a bit too near to the right edge of the screen, I think - there's not enough room to do much addition or subtraction, and there's no way to move crates further to the left when we don't even have any barrels.

Eh. Not much incentive to carry on working on the problem, if the setter didn't have a solution in mind, to be honest.

I've almost got it. Managed to get it up to 8. I'm thinking there might be a way to get a 1 from the top into there somehow.

I agree with Kevan though. With no apparent use for the level design it's just not very fun to work with.

An even number added to an even number will always result in an even number.
An even number subtracted from an even number will always result in an even number.

The target is odd.

The puzzle is impossible without another odd crate that can be used.

But the puzzle starts with a 1. If there were room I could route a 1 down from the top to add to the 8.

Close attempt, foiled by order of movement. (Okay, fine, so it was an unfortunate infinite loop)

Cheated attempt, one tube removed.

I'll give you credit for that one, good job Nic.

And isn't that part of the fun of this game, to come up with puzzles that are challenging? Just because I didn't have a solution shouldn't mean it isn't fun, I mean, its fun to try something out for a couple hours on my own and then see what everyone else can come up with. Just my opinion.

Frankly, I stay away from some of the puzzles because they either aren't challenging enough or they only require one solution and no thought process.
