Finally, almost half a year after alchemistry came out, I have achieved the mythical, elusive 7 color combo. It's transmutation!

That is a very pretty combo.

Those looking to duplicate the feat should probably note that his quicksilver was at the leftmost spout.

Looking a little closer, 7 colours will only ever be possible if quicksilver is the leftmoust spout, the other two colours don't have the 4 unique outflows needed. RD may have already mentioned this afore, me memory is hazy.

If it's the rightmost, that would also work. You notice that there is one dead spigot in Red for him.

While I do agree that this took extreem skill, I would also like to point out that RD just happened to get the prefect combination of top peices right after his well-placed quicksilver to take full advantage of all colors....

The masses of overlapping peices helped also.

Saving crossover pieces and getting rid of undesirable ones is part of the Alchemistry puzzle.

A pink one! Or, better yet, a rainbow colored one.

/me gets working on it.

Oh, and while I've seen the word-so-big-it-dosn't-fit-on-one-line thing before, its always been with a booched Arial font, not the proper ringer-chosen font. Methinks you broke the system.

Alchemy has no time limit. RD has coded a bot for drinking. I wouldn't put it beyond him to have coded up a program to run through the board and find the optimum moves.
