really tough

even though this is not related to any aspect of this website, it still requires use of brain.

I dare anyone to solve the 40th puzzle, and list the moves for it.

This is nothing but a huge waste of time, but I could not resist.

The character 8 is the border, x is empty space, the other characters are 2-cell and 3-cell blocks which can move in the direction of their length.

Forgot to say the objective is to move the "nn" block outside.

Woo I just completed it. That last level is horrendous. Can't remember exactly how I did it but the final bit involved quite a long and exact cascading sequence of moves, once you've set that up it falls out but it's just horribly hard to set up

40th Stage is a Good one for exercise. Really takes a long time. I did it with 120 moves in the final trail.
