[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Wow, these puzzles are really getting tough. Here's a hint to take the edge off this puzzle.

    Start by clearing the ball three from the edge in the bottom row.

Hint Two
    Next, move the ball on the edge of the bottom row to fill the space that opened up when you removed a ball in your first move. Then repeat the process detailed in Hints One and Two on the other side of the triangle, and move the balls around until you're left with a number of balls arranged in a shape that resembles a pine tree. The rest is up to you.

Hint Three
    Hey, didn't Hint Two clearly say, "The rest is up to you?" Well, just know that you won't be able to rely on too many hints in the Disappearing Act puzzles to come! You can have a hint this time, though.

    Select one of the balls one in from the outer edge of the pine tree and jump it upward. Then, from this new location, jump over the tip of the tree. OK, this time, the rest really is up to you.
