Samuel Farinas is a computer engineering graduate who loves puzzles as a hobby. This version of the Crazy Elephant dance is his take on a puzzle originally designed by Markus Götz. Samuel created this version via 3D printing to demonstrate this amazing puzzle to others.
The goal is to remove all 7 elephants from the base. The arrow on the slider indicates the direction the elephants should eventually exit along.
It's deceptively simple: remove the elephants from the trace. Alas, there are rules preventing the long-nosed animals' escape.
1. They can only be rotated in one spot.
2. They can be in one of 3 positions: Pointing up, to the right, or down.
3. They must point down to pass under the gate.
Believe it or not, these 3 simple rules make this puzzle take 367 moves to solve and can easily lead to dead ends! Good luck and enjoy this tantalizing puzzle!
A special thanks to the family of Markus Götz, who has kindly given Samuel permission to use his puzzle design. Markus was a puzzle inventor and designer and manufacturer of multiple types of puzzles.
