How to Play Tetravex

To start a new game, select a board size from 2x2 to 5x5. 2x2 is very easy and is recommended for absolute beginners.

You start with a number of pieces on the right board. These pieces must be moved to the left board and reassembled so that the numbers on the edges match.

When you've finished a game, you may be asked to type in your initials for inclusion into the high score table. Both the high score table and the input box can be repositioned elsewhere by dragging their tops.

If you get hopelessly stuck you can solve the game by selecting Solve It!

Strategies

If a piece has a number on one of its edges that cannot be matched with another piece then it must be placed along one of the edges of the board so that the unique number is against the board edge e.g. a piece has a 3 on its left side but there's no piece with a matching 3 on its right side which means this piece should be placed along the left edge of the board. Identifying any such pieces from the outset will give you a foundation to build upon.

FAQ

I can only see an orange play area with no content.
Right-click on the game and select Rewind from the menu.

The Instructions button doesn't work.
I never got around to implementing in-game instructions.

The high scores aren't restored from a previous visit.
The high scores were once saved in a cookie but I don't like Flash's security so I've disabled it.

The font in dynamic text fields (timer, high scores) renders oddly.
It's a font issue which other people may experience but which I'm not in a position to do anything about.
