Reassemble The Bridge: Weekend Testing 38

Mission: To solve the puzzle with help of a partner.

Mental Modeling and Approach:

With the image observed for fraction of a second and URL of puzzle read in chat transcription of WT 38, gave an instinct -- what I saw may be bridge with blue sky and greens.

The scattered images pieces appeared to have different colors and boundary shapes. Few image pieces appeared to have same color but varied in its contrast to my eyes. These pieces had pictures that looked like hanging bridge, moving car, green grass and water. This helped to get a picture in my mind with help of the picture I saw, when I browsed the URL of puzzle.

Approach I used to play puzzle was varying one factor at a time and identifying its patterns.

Playing this puzzle helped me to practice and learn:
  • Observing.
  • Identifying patterns.
  • Factoring.
  • Reasoning.
  • Testing.

Weekend Testing report is here. My report is here.

Note: I did not play as per the mission statement. I played puzzle individually.
