The third kind of daily global challenge is available at

SlidingMin - how to play

The goal of SlidingMin is to form the words GAME BOT CLUB in the least amount of moves (the word BOT must be green and left aligned).

Tiles can slide horizontally or vertically.
Click on a letter to slide it into the empty space.
Click on the empty space to undo the last slide.
Multi-tile sliding is supported.

There are many implementations based on the 19th-century 15 Puzzle.
What is interesting about SlidingMin is that it rates solutions and allows people to play together.

The built-in hint system prevents frustration...
If you feel that a particular daily instance is too difficult, just refresh the page after a few hours.
One hour before the game ends, there will only be 10 moves remaining to solve the puzzle with an optimal solution.
The question is: who gets there first? :)
