    This was fun to make. Please send me your solutions so others can try it too.

    Solution PM'ed. This one is a much better problem than the first. Not only is it more focused on thematic elements, but it is done economically [few 'extra' moves played outside the theme].

    Confirmed. Just out of curiosity, how would you rate this puzzle's difficulty, perhaps on a scale of 1-10 (10 being really hard)? Be honest; I can take it.

    3. I solved it in about 5 minutes. But it's more like the PG's I'm used to solving (it has strong thematic content).
