26 Pieces Remaining


You can swap horizontally or vertically adjacent pieces to form rows or columns of 3 or more identical pieces. When you do so, these rows or columns will vanish and any pieces above will fall down. If this creates a new row or column of 3 or more identical pieces, these too will vanish. If a piece simultaneously forms part of a row and column, each of 3 or more, the piece counts in both directions.

What is the fewest number of swaps required to make all pieces vanish?


My doctors say I shouldn't mind having Morgan's. That isn't so bad. That when I leave school there are lots of jobs that Morgs can get now. Except they don't say Morgs. Ever. They say 'people with MHBS'. This is called person-centred terminology, by the way. It is meant to make being a Morg sound sort of all right, like Morgan's is something you choose to have, like a pretty new handbag or pet chinchoa.

But I do mind. The doctors don't get it. I don't want everyone rallying around me, feeling sorry for me, coddling me because I'm poor little Pippy, who can't even unscramble an anagram. And, sure, I don't think any of my friends would be rude about me to my face. But that's not the point.

The point is I live in Perplex City and, really, it is far better not to have Morgan's around here. It just is. Having Morgan's is, like, a joke. Okay, making Morg jokes might be seen as sort of bad taste but most people still do it. I don't want my friends laughing behind my back because I can't figure out what the deal of the day is at Whipsmart, or what record is at the top of the charts. Even if they are nice to me to my face.

So I try and pass. I have to check and double check everything. I have crib notes written everywhere that they can't be seen: between my fingers, on the inside of my wrist, the crook of my elbow. They tell me how to get hexadecimal, binary and multiple-language decoders on my key quickly, so I can translate any shop fronts that don't make sense, cope in a puzzle bar, tell time. It's like a checklist of all the things that norms would do without thinking about it. All stuff I need to know without looking like I have to think.
