Many of you have bought or traded with me this puzzle the last months, and as I promised, I am publishing here the solution. There were many reasons I had to do this, *at least* four reasons...(!!!) ;)

This will also give a chance for everyone to get some idea of the movements of odd numbered tile magic puzzles.

A picture is like thousand words, so I let them do the talking:

Of course, to go back to the first state, we just need to follow the reverse order of the pictures. For those who would like to see this on a video, please click HERE (Quicktime format, about 11Mb).

Although I have practiced a lot, it is still a mysterious puzzle for me. It is very complex in the sense that it contains the parity difference that can separate even numbered tile magics, which increases the combinations dramatically. If you make a wrong move, please do not ask me for help, sometimes it takes a lot of time even for myself to get back on track to find the solution LOL

The video reveals that I am no speedsolver, rather than someone who thinks carefully of each move. And getting some sports injury last Monday on the right arm (still hasn't healed) did not help me as well... :?

The final plan would be to insert the above pictures, as well as some more information into some PDF file which will be the "Secret of Atlantis" solution booklet.
