Today, I was playing Ubongo Extreme and I could NOT solve the following puzzle: B-38, purple colour.

Let me know if you can solve it!

    $\begingroup$ I believe the pieces are reversible. BGG has an English translation of the rules, which contains "The players now try to arrange their tiles on the card so as to match and cover the shape. The tiles can be placed with either of their sides face-up." $\endgroup$ – Cascabel Dec 20 '17 at 19:57

Given that the pieces are reversible (see comment from Jefromi):

You just have to flip piece 3 over, then arrange them like so: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ @RnRoger: Based on point 2 of the "Strategy" section here, I think they are. But admittedly I've never played this. $\endgroup$ – gnovice Dec 20 '17 at 19:33
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I am pretty sure it sn't possible without flipping them -in which case it isn't that hard. I tried with powerpoint ART but can't get it to fit without flipping. $\endgroup$ – RnRoger Dec 20 '17 at 19:50

    $\begingroup$ I've played the game, and IIRC flipping the pieces is specifically allowed. $\endgroup$ – Bass Dec 22 '17 at 7:31
