Carcassonne Sliding Puzzle 5x5 Grid Fun!
« on: August 20, 2013, 02:35:39 PM »
Hello everyone! :meeple:

So, earlier this evening I got this idea of a sliding puzzle using Carcassonne tiles. Surprisingly, with a few tweaks you too can actually play this!

What I did:
1. Created a .jpg file with a finished 5x5 grid using the basic tiles that comes with the game.
2. Upload it to my server (picture below). http://sydby.com/carcassonne/screenshots/CarcassonneSlidingPuzzle25.jpg
3. Unfortunately, as far as I know it needs Google Chrome installed with the addon 'Puzzle for Chrome' which is free and one-click installed. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/puzzle-for-chrome/mbalnpbcmecdckpghgacibglihkgamkl?hl=en
4. Went to my picture using Chrome browser and simply right-click on it selecting the addon 'Puzzle for Chrome' and the next second I was already playing it!

YouTube clip to a recorded game test I did:

The picture I created:

Credits goes to 'unintended' user, real name Daniel Perez Alvarez for this great addon for Google!

World record holder for a single game of Carcassonne using 10 007 tiles!

Hey this is really cool!  Though I have to admit, I couldn't finish the 5x5  :(

It can get a bit tricky near the end of completion.

I myself can't rememer how I used to solve these back then (some twenty years ago) but it will solve itself if you complete the first three rows and then just use any combination with the last two (bottom) rows.

This should work on Android phones with Google Chrome installed as well.  :meeple:
