The answer is a single word.

This is a sample puzzle, similar to the isomorphic logic puzzles in my book oh! mega-puzzle. For more information, please see my website ohmegapuzzle.com and my kickstarter project here.

Thanks, and good luck!

Hi psykomakia

Interesting stuff. It would be helpful to include all needed information,
rather than directing puzzle solvers to your website.

For starters, do the cards tile the grid?

Welcome to the Den!


Everything needed to solve the puzzle is posted here. The directions for the puzzle are under the title. Yes, the window-cards must cover the entire grid.

EDIT: I meant "for more information" about my book, not this puzzle specifically. Sorry for the confusion. And thanks for the welcome!

Also, the image got squished a bit, so it isn't a perfectly square grid. That's an error. The grid should be square, and so the window-cards should cover a 6x3 or 3x6 square area on the grid.

Tip:
It might be easiest to print out the image so you can physically manipulate the window-cards.

My printer is black and white and makes the tiles not fun to look at.

Plus my parole officer won't let me use scissors.

I'm only joking about one thing on this list.

I wrote a program to exhaust over all possible ways to tile the grid in the manner described in the puzzle.

Though I do want to say that there is a logical way to go through and solve it without computers, and one that wouldn't take too long with some additional trial-and-error.
