[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There are several ways to solve this puzzle, so start moving those cans around and see what you end up with.

    It shouldn't be too hard to get to a point where a few more moves will do it.

Hint Two
    The 14-move limit definitely makes things a little tricky. And don't forget that you can't stack up more than six cans at a time. Also, don't get carried away stacking up the same type of can every chance you get, because it's going to cost you moves in the long run.

Hint Three
    Instead of stacking up the same type of can every chance you get, it's better to think about what type of cans you should stack in each row.

    Whenever possible, you want to move as many cans together as possible at a time. Of course, sometimes you have to move just one can at a time.

Super Hint
    From left to right, think of the stacks as the first, second, third, and fourth.

    Move the fish from the fourth stack to the first stack. Move the peaches from the second stack to the fourth stack. Move the ham from the third stack to the second stack. Move the fish from the third stack to the first stack...

    You can take it from here!
