The Pentomino Puzzle

The object of this game is simply to fit the twelve pieces into the 6x10 grid. To return a piece to the box, simply press the right mouse button while "carrying" it on the mouse pointer. It IS possible and there are lots of ways to do it, but that doesn't make it easy. Have fun!

Sorry, your browser doesn't seem to be able to display applets ;-(

Slightly more detailed instructions:

To pick up a piece from the box, simply click on the small picture at the bottom. The picture will turn grey (meaning that the piece is no longer in the box), and the piece will jump onto the mouse cursor. Move the piece onto the board, and hit the left mouse button to drop it. To pick up a piece once you've put it on the board, simply click on it. To send a piece back to the box, pick it up, then hit the right mouse button. To rotate a piece, pick it up then click on the rotate button with it. You can mirror and flip the piece using the "flip x" and "flip y" buttons.

At the moment, it doesn't do anything amazing when you finish the puzzle. I'm working on that.
