On the Subject of Greek Letter Grids

It's not an "upside-down L" anymore!

  • There are 3 colored Greek letters on this module (out of a possible 18) on a 4x4 grid labeled ABCD along the x axis and 1234 along the y axis.
  • Follow the rules in order prioritizing top to bottom to determine which positions each letter should be in.
  • Refer to the included Greek alphabet if necessary.
  • Pressing the submit button when a letter is in the improper place will yield a strike and give you 3 new letters to move.
  • Select a letter by clicking it and move the selected letter with the arrow keys on the module.
