Has anyone here heard of the fifteen puzzle? It's basically a 2D sequential move puzzle.
There's a little app for it on the windows vista/7 sidebar called "picture puzzle".

If you've played it, what's your fastest time? I usually get 20 - 30 seconds, my best is 17.

I've had one for a while. I don't time myself though. I write down a random combination for the puzzle then try it to see if it's possible. Or maybe make a pattern. I don't just do the normal 1-->15 combination.

When I was "practicing", I was around 25 seconds.

But I know for a fact Abel Brata from Indonesia is godly fast at it. :S
Going to Asian Champ?

BTW, i made a scramble generator here:
http://abelbrata.phpnet.us/puzzle/15puzzle.php

U = slide up
D = slide down
L = slide left
R = slide right
The number after that is how many pieces you slide.
Example D3 --> slide 3 pieces downwards.....

I loved my 15 puzzle. I had one, and it was a promotional 15-puzzle advertising the movie "Knowing" starring Nicolas Cage.
Two of the left border pieces were the same, so I could have had permutation parity.
I averaged 15 seconds.
