Borje,

Well done !

I never did well with such games but I gave it a try and just by

chance I think I figured out the key to solving the puzzle.

The method works every time:

Step 1:

Slide pieces until you get the bottom row to look like this:

|9|13|14|15|

Step 2:

Slide pieces until you get the top row to look like this:

|1|2|3|4|

Step 3:

Slide pieces until middle rows are correct like this:

(and do not move any of the top or bottom row pieces to do it)

|5| 6| 7| 8|

| |10|11|12|

Step 4:

Move the 9 piece up to get:

|1| 2| 3| 4|

|5| 6| 7| 8|

|9|10|11|12|

| |13|14|15|

Step 5:

Move bottom row left one space to get:

| 1| 2| 3| 4|

| 5| 6| 7| 8|

| 9|10|11|12|

|13|14|15| |

The key is the bottom row of |9|13|14|15| !

Always get that first, then get the top row with |1|2|3|4| next

and then the rest is easy.

My best time was 1:41 (1 minute 41 seconds).
