Sliding Piece Puzzles on a 4x5 Board

Sliding piece puzzles are already more than a century old, and you can easily built these fascinating games. Especially the games for the 4 x 5 board as shown on the right side are really compact, and some are very challenging. All you need are the the eleven pieces shown in the 4 x 5 board. Either two small squares or one rectangular piece are removed to leave room for the sliding pieces, and the remaining rectangular pieces are used either in a horicontal or a vertical orientation. The goal is to move the large square to the destination position indicated by the thick line outside the 4 x 5 board.
