The 15 Puzzle is the classic sliding block puzzle, by Sam Loyd, perhaps the
greatest of all puzzle creators. He originally called it the "Boss Puzzle," and
later called it the "15-16 Puzzle." In general, you mix up the numbered blocks
and then try to rearrange them back in the original order (the left side of this
diagram). You can only slide the blocks; you cannot remove a block from the
puzzle. Loyd's original instructions were to start with the arrangement on the
left, and rearrange the blocks to end up with the second arrangement in that
diagram (switching the 14 and the 15). He tried to get a patent for this puzzle,
but the U.S. Patent Office demanded the solution. Loyd admitted that there was
no solution; the puzzle is impossible. So the Patent Office refused to grant him
It is not clear when the first slide puzzle was invented or made.
But it is a well known fact that in 1878 Sam Loyd,
America's greatest puzzle-expert, "drove the whole world crazy" with his newly
"discovered" 14-15 puzzle. This was a variation on the "Puzzle of 15" which was
made and sold by the Embossing Company from New York about 10 years earlier.
This puzzle consisted of 15 numbered square pieces that could be slided around
in a square box that was big enough to contain 16 pieces. The pieces should be
placed at random in the box and you should sort the pieces in ascending order
without taking the pieces out of the box (so the only thing that is allowed is
to slide the pieces). Not every randomly placed pattern of pieces can be sorted
by just shuffling and Sam Loyd cleverly made use of this fact.
