    This is a pretty nice puzzle. I hope you guys don't know it yet. Reach this position from starting position in four moves each.



    Good luck!

    Oh no it's definitely possible . When I saw the puzzle first I also thought it to be impossible but there's a fine sollution adn I'm sure somebody will find it.

    D*mn that was quick. Nice one Meph! (too bad we don't have an applauding smily here. You'll have to pretend it was there! )
