Leaf Fall Puzzle
The blank board is just to practice on. When you are ready, just choose a puzzle.
How to Play It’s fall in New England and the red and gold maple leaves
are covering the woodland floor. The aim of this puzzle is to place more red and gold leaves
on the board obeying these three rules —
1 Every row and every column must have four red and four gold leaves.
2 Not more than two of any colour leaf can be together in a row or column.
3 Each row and column must be a unique arrangement.
One click or tap puts down a red leaf, a second tap places a gold leaf and three taps picks both leaves up. This
is a simple puzzle although it needs thought. The ‘Hint’ may be useful. The ‘Check’ button will
search the board and remove any leaves in the wrong place. There is also the
emergency Solve button simply to prove that there is a solution to each puzzle.
