Alien Tiles Game. Play the game, then see the scientific papers from the UK and from Rutgers University on the subject. Enjoy.

If I didn't get JavaScript errors instead of results everytime I clicked, I might be having more fun with this.

I can't do it.

I understood the directions (click on a tile and every tile in that same row and column turns the next color in the series) but after only a few turns, the game stopped responding to my clicks.

It's a very attractive game, but response time (when it is working) is very sluggish. Maybe I'll try back later.

The answer for a 7x7 board had 587 moves. Of course I did it in 593 moves but I expect to do better next time.

Nope. Doesn't work for me, either. I'll try it again later.

I think 14 moves is the best possible for changing all tiles to blue, Mitchel.
