A 12-tile-magic with eight dangling tiles.

The Magic Octopus is a 12-tile magic puzzle different from all the other 12-tile magics known before. It is in fact, a single loop 4-tile magic puzzle, where each of the eight outside sides has an additional (tentacle) extension.

For this puzzle to be solved, you need to know well how to solve a 4-tile magic puzzle, as it will require a few more tricky moves to make sure the tentacle-extensions don't get tangled with each other!
