Road Runner Puzzle '79

Man, I am so terrible at these type of sliding tile puzzle games, but god I love 'em just the same! And yeah, you can call me a quitter, as this is about as good as I can get it-- but quarantined Karswell (Quarswell?) gave it his best, and after giving up all hope on getting that white border completed, ultimately settled for just getting the 'ol Meeper fully assembled instead, *MEEP! MEEP! From 1979, and clearly made by ACME as this "genius" will remain forever stumped and beaten to a pulp by these confounded contraptions.

PS: And yes, I am fully aware of the cheater walk-thrus on youtube! ;)

Awesome. I love puzzles, but this is the kind of restricted movement contraption that mostly just frustrates me. I had enough of them in my time, though, lord knows. I think you made a mature compromise. Ida hit it with a hammer myself. Like I used to.

I feel personally attacked by that cheater remark! :)

I actually wish I had one of those puzzles so I could try the solution out! That said, I remember back in the old days, after fighting off wolves in the cave, I'd play with those string/metal/wood puzzles where you had to remove a ring or whatnot.

Haha, well as I mentioned on facebook, the open window I was sitting next too almost got fed quite a few times while the struggle persisted. I was intent on not being the coyote in this situation though. For once.

Youtube is not always the answer-- until it is, normally, 99.9% of the time! ;)

A little orange nail polish to cover up the white and no one will ever know the difference, at least that would be my solution.
