PUZZLE BLOCKS ANCIENT TIPS & TRICKS
Limit your clicks. You’ll lose stars the more you move or rotate the blocks. If you’re striving for a perfect score, you’ll want to plan the block placement carefully to use the least amount of moves. A good way to do this is to start off placing the blocks that don’t need to be rotated, you’ll save a few clicks on that alone!
Pick up speed. The quicker you finish the levels, the more points will be added on to your score! Start with placing blocks that don’t need to be rotated. This way, you can immediately drop them on the board and save yourself a second or two. Speed may be a good way to boost your final score, but don’t rush or you’ll risk wasting moves. Take a second to analyze the board first before making a move.
Visualize the final product. Without moving any blocks, take a look at the pattern on the board and try to imagine a way all your blocks can fit in those spaces. You use a move whenever you click a block, but once you pick it up, you can drag it around the board to see if it fits in anywhere.
Try, try again. You’ll be able to see where your score stands as you play. The stars on the top of the screen will disappear if you make one too many moves. When aiming for three stars, you can reset the level and try again! Be careful: repetition can help you see the patterns quicker. Resetting the level will bring you back to square one if there are more than one puzzles in the level.
Save your hints. You can use a hint by clicking on the lightbulb in the right corner of the screen. However, you’ll want to use these sparingly! If you complete a level without using a hint, it’ll earn you more points. It’s best to save these for when you’re really stuck on a tough level.

They were also one of the first civilizations with a written language, using ink to write on ancient paper called papyrus.
Greece. The Ancient Greeks had a rich culture full of creativity and vigor. They made great strides in literature and philosophy, telling stories of mythical beasts and heroes that are still studied in many schools today! Ancient Greece is also the birthplace of the Olympic Games, which started around 700 B.C, and much like today, took place every 4 years.
Persia. The Persian empire was one of the biggest of all ancient civilizations. The Persians conquered lands stretching from northern Africa all the way to parts of Central Asia.

The ancient Persians are also credited with developing the first postal service!
