In a 4x5 board, there are ten blocks, one 2x2 block, five 1x2(or 2x1) blocks, and four 1x1 blocks. There are many opening patterns. The rule is very simple, just side the blocks to open space inside the 4x5 board, no jumping, no rotation, just sliding. Then move the biggest square block out from the center bottom of the board, you win.
It is challenging. The classic opening pattern, the minimal steps needed is 81. Well, it is not approved that this is the minimal steps, so you may come up with a new strategy to break the record.
Not sure this game was originally from China. But the figures on the blocks, come from the well-know Chinese historical story "The legend of three kingdoms". The three kingdoms were Wei, Shu and Wu.
In 208, CaoCao marched south with his army hoping to quickly unify the empire. So CaoCao had a big fight with Shu and Wu. Their combined armies of 50,000 met CaoCao's fleet and 200,000-strong force at Red Cliffs (Chinese: ChiBi) that winter. After an initial skirmish, an attack beginning with a plan to set fire to CaoCao's fleet was set in motion to lead to a decisive defeat on CaoCao, forcing him to retreat in disarray back to the north.
When Caocao retreated, he went to HuaRongDao, a place guarded by GuanYu, one of the five in Shu. Finally CaoCao escaped.
So this game has another name: "Help CaoCao to Escape".
