You two friends are still venturing through the endless halls of the gallery of hyper-modern art.
"Oh, look, this time there is a quite modern piece featuring an on-going event!"
"Really? I don't quite get it. I bet, all these letters are supposed to spell something out, right? But without my HUD I'm not seeing it. What is it?"
"You're quite right, but not exactly. The piece is called Rio 2016, because it resembles the logo of the 2016 Olympics."
"It does? I'm not seeing it, what's the trick?"
"Take a look through my HUD. See how the pieces re-arrange themselves now?"
"Ah, yes. Now I can see it. But why all these letters?"
"Let me show you", he turns another knob on the HUD, "see how these groups now form words? And when you read them..."
"Ah, yes, quite clever. But could one do that without the HUD, I wonder...."
Your task in this puzzle is straight forward and simple:
Assemble the puzzle pieces below into an arrangement which best matches the shape of the Rio 2016 logo.
So, the solution is picture of the rearranged puzzle tiles in the (rough) shape of the Rio 2016 logo.
But here's the catch:
When all pieces are put together, it must be possible to split the final shape into different connected pieces (consisting of multiple squares which are all connected via common edges, not corners) such that each of these pieces contains letters which can be re-arranged into one of the Olympic sports of the game. All letters must be used that way. (Similar to this puzzle.)
A few clarifications:
- Puzzle pieces may be rotated
- The orientation of the letters in the square are just to obscure tile orientation
For puzzle-building reason, the list of Olympic sports has been slightly modified (and not all sports are used), so if you prefer the list, it is:
Archery Athletics Badminton Basketball Boxing Canoe Cycling Diving Fencing Football Golf Gymnastics Handball Hockey Judo Rowing Rugby Sailing Shooting Swimming Taekwondo Trampoline Triathlon Volleyball Weightlifting Wrestling Pentathlon
To find the approximated shape you want to cover, you will need to resize the logo image such that the number of "used" tiles matches. Or, if you want to make your life more simple, use the following image: (spoiler!)
