Please do NOT post your answers, but do say if you think you have solved the puzzle and how long it took. Solution on Monday.

OK, a nice easy one this week.  Can you move 2 of these coins and change the direction of the arrow?

    1. It’s that easy. Problem, like all of his, is very carefully worded, so only need to change from current direction to any other. As soon as you notice which coins make the head, and which make the tail, ….

    1. How? The answer is yes or no. You either can or can’t. We are not in the realm of quantum physics here.

  1. Nice one. I got the obvious answer in about a second, like most people, but I had to read the other comments to get the second answer. Good and sneaky!

  2. No I can’t and it took me 0.01 second to come to that conclusion.
    I suppose it could be argued that I didn’t really try.
    I can only agree with that…

  3. Cheers, Richard, that is an easy one: got in within a couple of seconds 🙂 It’s a fun little puzzle, so thanks for that. Have an excellent weekend 😀

  4. two simple moving answers, many answers moving no coins using a mirror,
    many answers turning the screen around,,one by converting to hexadecimal and then roman numerals and so it goes and so it goes

  5. Took about 10 seconds to realize the direction I wanted to point the arrow would not work. After that it took about 2 seconds to come up with two solutions.
