Hey, has anyone been able to solve the square formation riddle?
 
It's been eluding me for a couple of hours now.

It's somewhere in the Hard forum. I believe SWF posted the solution. At least, he posted a replacement.

I tried searching for it, but I can't seem to find the board. Sad
 
Sorry, if it's already posted. -_-
 
Could Mr.SWF post again?  Grin

I don't remember solving this one, but maybe I questioned its suitability for being in the Hard section.  If it really has been unsolved since being posted a couple of years ago, maybe it really does belong in "Hard".  You don't even need to move two of the pieces and two of the others don't have to be rotated.

I'd probably go as far as to put it in easy (based on the criterion "once you see it it's obviously right").
But people coming from the 'main' site, would look for it in hard..
