I really enjoyed this one, but isn't it kind of a "Trick" since it requires the "9" to be turned upside-down?

Turning the 6 upside down is a bit silly in my opinion.
Moving the 3 from row 1 to 'somewhere' and moving the 4 from row 2 to row 1 is at least as good.

That doesn't work because "all of the numbers must be used in the answer".
