Can you work this Brain Teaser out?
A Brain Teaser a week - Puzzle 1
I'm going to add a brain teaser every week starting with this one I saw on The Crystal Maze many years ago. By the way, if you've never heard of The Crystal Maze then check out YouTube, it was a wonderful game that should be brought back.
The idea of this puzzle is to move just 3 matches creating 3 squares the same size instead of 4 squares the same size like it is now. I recommend you get some matches and do it on a table instead of trying to do it in your mind, you could get frustrated.
You can't have any matches that are not part of a whole square either.
I struggled on this one for about half an hour until I finally solved it. And when I did I couldn't believe how easy it was and felt a little dumb for not solving it quicker. Still, it was a lot of fun trying to solve it and that's what makes a good puzzle after all.
I have made a puzzle pack with 57 such puzzles in it that I made for my fun pub quiz nights. My quiz teams look forward to my brain teaser every week. You can download my puzzle pack here: Puzzles and Games
