List of Scramble Squares Puzzles with solutions

This list covers variations of a certain kind of tile based game called Scramble Squares (in German: “Legespiel”) in which square cards must be placed to form a larger square so that the images of all cards fit together at the edges. It shows the number of solutions and what they look like exactly. All solutions were calculated with the software Legespiel-Solver. The results also make it possible to estimate how difficult the respective Scramble Squares puzzle really is.

About the Content

For legal reasons only very few solutions are available with original pictures. Therefore, in most cases, the only available graphics are the ones generated by the Legespiel-Solver, which contain a textual description of the cards. Duplicate cards have the same background color (green, blue or red).

Solutions that only result from turning another solution 90°, 180° or 270° were not counted as original solutions. Also, solutions that look the same because of duplicated or symmetric cards count as identical.

Whenever the cards for a game are unfortunately not available and therefore the solutions are unknown, this symbol is used.

The difficulty of a game is measured by how many combinations you have to try on average in a systematic search (without repetitions) until you find a solution. A higher number therefore means that the game is more difficult.

Further Information

For more information about the Legespiel-Solver and how it can be used to determine solutions to Scramble Square puzzles, see the articles Backtracking in The Nursery – How to Solve Scramble Squares and Solving Knifflidiffels – Scramble Squares With Duplicate Cards. There is even a Scramble Squares Solver Online available.

Is your favourite game still missing? Do you have any cards that would be useful to make this list more complete? You could use the Scramble Squares Solver Online to submit your game. Or maybe you discovered a mistake? I would be very grateful for a message or comment.
