home wriggle

Original wriggle

This puzzle is a real can of worms. Can you rearrange the wrigglers so that each one covers its own colour-coded squares? Each worm can wriggle backwards or forwards, but not if another wriggler (or its own tail) blocks its path. In a small space even one wriggler can be hard to manouvre!

The single-worm puzzles are easier in general, so I recommend you try these first. I can guarantee all puzzles have been solved at least once - but some I never managed twice! Good luck.
