Pikes Peak Challenge
(Complete a picture using your mouse)


  1. While the 16 images load read the instructions. This is not the game – just the pieces — you get to the game in step 7

  2. Once you start the game, move your mouse around the game board to
    complete the picture.

  3. For each square three things may cause changes to the board:
    A) Entering the square
    B) Clicking the square
    C) Exiting the square

  4. Entering a square, clicking or not clicking it, and exiting that square are
    considered one move — not two or three moves.

  5. Write down your moves!!! For example:
       Move 1 - Row A Column 1 Click
       Move 2 - Row B Column 1 Passover
    Besides helping you to finish the game, to get on the winner’s board you must
    send me the 8 moves which will work regardless of the initial state of the board!

  6. The final picture must stay intact after you remove the mouse from the board.

  7. Play the Game!!!
