Penny Flip Puzzle

This is my spin on the Wooden Nickel Brain Teaser Puzzle produced by Creative Crafthouse. The design is simple – make slots for nine pennies in a row. I made the design more complicated by adding hardwood inlay on the sides and adding a built in compartment for the pennies when the game is being stored.

The object of the puzzle is to remove the coins from the board.

Setup:

Place nine coins in the slots. The order of heads vs. tails should be random.
Rules:
  • The person playing may flip any one coin before starting the game.
  • You can only remove coins facing heads.
  • Once a head facing coin is removed, you must flip the neighboring coins over. Note that blank spaces (gaps) do not count as neighbors.
  • Keep removing heads and flipping neighbors.

Can you remove all the coins?
