Manifold: How to solve an easy puzzle

Many of you didn't have the occasion to try Manifold. It's still possible to print some puzzles here, but maybe you don't have time, or the right paper and printer to do it. So let's look at one example.

 

Manifold is the unexpected fusion of a Rubik cube and Origami. Starting with a square piece of paper, the goal is to bring all the black spaces on one side and all the white spaces on the other, only by folding.

 

The game has 100 levels, all very different from each other numbered the easiest to the most difficult. Let's have a look at level 10.

 

Are you looking for something more advanced? Have a look at my solution to #43, and my solution to #84.


First, I fold most of the white spaces on the other side.


Then, I do the same for the large gray area.


After flipping the paper over, I realize that the white spaces are hidden, but I can bring them back by bringing a large triangle back on top.


Finally, I carefully hide the gray squares on the right, behind the white ones. At the same time, I bring the last white square to the bottom right of the puzzle.


And it's done! All the white spaces are on one side, all the black spaces are on the other, and all the gray parts are hidden inside the puzzle.

 

Curious? You should get your own copy of the game! I'm sure you will love it!

    Fold side of 2 rows toward gray side. Fold the yellow next black row with number in half to hide one row yellow putting the single white box next to black squares. Fold row of 3 white to back. Fold row of single white square to back completing the row of 3 squares. Fold 3 rows of 4 white squares to back finishing puzzle

    I'm developing in my sudoku learning each day. In the event that you need to get quicker I prescribe getting the book called "Acing Sudoku step by step," by Paul Stephens. When I initially began a simple baffle took me around twenty minutes. Presently I can do a simple perplex in less than four to three minutes. In any case, even ten minutes is viewed as useful for a fledgling.
