Hi,

As you can know XXII Olympic Winter Games was opened in Sochi
on February 07, 2014. I decided to memorize this fact and created sliding
puzzle devoted to the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi 2014. There are
five Olympic rings which cannot be put together, there are 5 talisman characters:
Snowflake (Snezhinka), Beam (Luchik), Leopard, Hare and Bear. Pieces "2014" are
bandaged, whereas "Sochi" is not. On the other side of the puzzle I put the Olympic
logo, which can be used as a key for the solution. The puzzle is very difficult. Enjoy!

Overhang bandaging in 2D? Leave it to iaroslavski to bring a brilliant new twist to good old sliding puzzles!

Very cool.

Nice puzzle, to make it more the 'real thing' souvenir, you should block the upper right Olympic Ring.

Yes, it makes sense :)

The upper right Olympic Ring was not opened.

Sure, I blocked the red ring :)
Now the puzzle is more "real" and much complex!

Hi,

XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi is closed today, on February 23, 2014.
There were hot and cool competitions!

Two weeks ago the red ring was not opened, but at the ceremony
this "problem" was fixed today :)

Therefore, to keep the puzzle more "real" I decided to put snowflakes
to the all Olympic rings, but make the red ring a little bit different. Enjoy!
