Final Fantasy Wiki

15 Puzzle in the NES version.

The 15 Puzzle is a secret minigame in the original Final Fantasy that can be played after having obtained the ship; the player must hold the A button while in the ship and press B several times until the game appears. It exists in nearly every version.

In the puzzle the player must organize 15 squares into numerical order by sliding the squares. After solving the puzzle the player receives prizes, such as gil and items.

In the original NES version the reward for completing the puzzle is simply 100 gil. From the WonderSwan Color version and onward the prizes are better, including:

  • 1st place: 10,000 gil
  • 2nd place: 5,000 gil
  • 3rd place: 2,000 gil
  • Under 2 minutes: Antidote, Gold Needle, Potion
  • Under 4 minutes: Antidote, Potion
  • Under 6 minutes: Potion

In Dawn of Souls and the Anniversary Edition, the prizes are again improved:

Earning 1st, 2nd or 3rd place also rewards a "just finishing" prize.

The times to complete the 15 Puzzle:

  • 1st place: 0:30.00 or less
  • 2nd place: 0:30.00–1:00.00
  • 3rd place: 1:00.00–2:00.00

In the Pixel Remaster version, there is no timer, and all prizes are removed. Completing the puzzle does, however, grant an achievement.
