Place four coins on the bottom row of circles (p a e r) so that the word "Plexus" is showing.
Your aim is to slide the coins along the lines from one circle to another (no stopping half way!) to expose the word "pleaser" (noting that there is a difference between the capital 'P' and the small 'p'). There is only one catch: At no time are two coins allowed to be next to each other along a line.
So for instance, the coin on 'p' cannot move initially, or it would end up next to the coin on 'a'. Some of the lines are easily missed: note especially the u-r connection.
(In reply to re: Get your own problem!
My first thought when I saw this problem was "hey, another one of these. Cool!"
When I realized it was the exact same problem with different letters I got upset. I agree with SK that it is ok to share problems found elsewhere, but as Sam said, there should be a way for citations.
Personally, I have posted original problems on other puzzle sites. I would be upset to see them used elsewhere without credit.
Anyway, I'm sorry I was so harsh in airing my frustrations. I really like this site and would not want to instigate a flame war or anything like that.
