Thanks for an intriguing puzzle - Boxed out. So far only 129, still working to equal or better Malice.
Symmetry has lead me to try solving it from the sides, but that leads nowhere close to 125.

- @backhoes: My pleasure backhoes. I don't think it is possible to get less than 125, Malice is quite exceptional when it comes to these symmetrical type puzzles. If you wish to try though I will send you the first few moves of 125 solution by e-mail.
- @diaz: With your help, I'm at 125. This puzzle has never left my mind, always lurking in the background. But to keep sane, I just banned myself from more hours ending in failure. Now, thanks to you, some peace of mind.
Wow Malice ! That is an excellent score. I knew 128 was possible. I shall have to look again :-)
