Start building your bridge on the lower portion of the screen, starting on the 15th square from the left side. The four chips are in the middle of the water. Use the ice in between the other squares to make the blocks move more quickly. Wait until you get to level 48. Here's an advance tip. Remember to keep a pair of flippers for the very end. Good luck!

Hi Karen!

To answer your question, you should be able to build the bridge with only 7 blocks if you start where the tip indicates (building north from the 15th tile from the left of the bottom). It is the only spot in the entire maze where you will only need 7 blocks.

Another way to find this "special" place is as follows: go to the bottom section of the maze, below the water. You will see that there are three patches of ice, one on the left, one on the right and one in the middle. Get above the middle patch of ice, right next to the water, sort of on the left hand side of it. From there, you should be able to see two separate blocks like tiny islands in the middle of the water. Start to build your bridge toward that one-tile "island" that you can see on the left. It will take you three blocks to get to the island. When you add the fourth block, you should see two chips in the middle of the lake. By the time you add the sixth block, you will see that that patch of ice in front of you ends with a "safe" tile, and you will be able to get the chips. Use the seventh and final block to complete your mission to the chip-island in the center of the lake. After that, head for the goal!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you still have problems!
