Puzzle #13: Move 3 Planks to Turn this Pattern in the Opposite Direction

Ladies and gentlemen!  Boys & girls!  It's time for another brain puzzle!  (wild applause!)

For this puzzle your challenge is to turn this pattern in the opposite direction by moving only 3 planks.

Give it a Try!

Grab 10 Brain Blox planks (or anything with a similar shape) and lay them out on a table so they look like the pattern in the above photo.

Next, give your brain a workout by seeing if you can turn the pattern in the opposite direction by moving only 3 planks!

Be patient. If you're having difficulty maybe you'll want to take a break and try it again later.

Or, you can keep reading for some hints below.

Don't read any further unless you want some help solving this puzzle!

Hint #1: The single plank on the far right needs to be moved.

Hint #2: The current column of 4 planks needs to change so it only has 2 planks.

Hint #3: Don't move any of the planks in the column of 3.  Those 3 planks stay where they are and no new planks are added to that column.


Ready for the solution?  Here you go!
