How does the puzzle work? Quite simple. The pieces of the puzzles will move along with the mouse. Try different versions of the puzzle - you can see it in many different shapes - like Euro or American states - (under option "shapes").
You can even move it automatically by pressing "solve" at the right site of the screen. If you have any troubles just contact me. Hope you would have a good time!
