I would like to know if anyone here understands Hugarian ?

I would like to know what the objectif is, in these 2 challenges
(blue, red, yellow, green loop or lines ?)

I don't understand Hungarian, but I think these are solutions of some kind. The tiles are numbered, so you could put them down in the right spots and try to rotate them in place to match them up nicely. Maybe they are attempts at longest lines/loops

This is probably the new numbering scheme - for tiles with the numbers engraved on the back. Old Tantrix sets like mine don't have numbers on them (you had to look them up in the booklet). They had a different numbering scheme. A conversion table can be found on the Tantrix.com homepage, or on my own updated page which I uploaded just now:

Thanks Jaap,

It`s the solution to a long yellow loop, it uses 2 set of tiles,(since some tiles are used twice),
anyway, here is a picture of what it`s suppose to look like.
I guess it`s another case of "missing in translation".
