## Solution

Plan of attack: Solve the sides in ascending order (I thru VI). That way the side(s) with the most holes will always be open. This makes it a lot easier to peer inside the shell, especially since those ID numbers are so tiny.

### Solve Side I.

Start off with side I as the front and side II as the bottom, with all 7 plates at the bottom as well. Fill all four vertical sides with a single plate each, by FLIPPING them up one at a time. If plate #14 appears on any of the sides, then knock down the 3 others first and then plate #14 last, which will place it on top of the stack

If plate #14 does not appear, then knock down all 4 plates. Next, FLIP all 7 plates from the bottom to the front side. Next, SLIDE all 7 plates from the front to the bottom side. Once again, fill all four veritcal sides, and use the same method as before to climb plate #14 to the top of the stack.

Once the plate is on top of the stack, merely FLIP it up to side I. Afterwards, fill the other 3 vertical sides with a single plate each. This will prevent binding from occurring during the following moves.

### Solve Side II.

#### Important note: Do NOT disturb the plate that is already affixed to side I.

Start off with side II as the front and side I as the bottom, with all 6 loose plates at the bottom as well. Fill all four vertical sides with a single plate each, by FLIPPING them up one at a time. If plate #12 appears on any of the sides, then knock down the 3 others first and then plate #12 last, which will place it on top of the stack

If plate #12 does not appear, then knock down all 4 plates. Next, FLIP all 6 loose plates from the bottom to the front side. Next, SLIDE all 6 loose plates from the front to the bottom side. Once again, fill all four veritcal sides, and use the same method as before to climb plate #12 to the top of the stack.

Once the plate is on top of the stack, merely FLIP it up to side II. Afterwards, fill the other 3 vertical sides with a single plate each. This will prevent binding from occurring during the following moves.

### Solve Side III.

#### Important note: Do NOT disturb the plates that are already affixed to sides I and II.

Start off with side III as the front and side I as the bottom, with all 5 loose plates at the bottom as well. Fill the 3 empty vertical sides with a single plate each, by FLIPPING them up one at a time. If plate #58 appears on any of the sides, then knock down the 2 others first and then plate #58 last, which will place it on top of the stack

If plate #58 does not appear, then knock down the 3 plates. Next, FLIP all 5 loose plates from the bottom to the front side. Next, SLIDE all 5 loose plates from the front to the bottom side. Once again, fill the 3 empty veritcal sides, and use the same method as before to climb plate #58 to the top of the stack.

Once the plate is on top of the stack, merely FLIP it up to side III. Afterwards, fill the other 2 vertical sides with a single plate each. This will prevent binding from occurring during the following moves.

### Solve Side IV.

#### Important note: Do NOT disturb the plates that are already affixed to sides I, II or III.

Start off with side IV as the front and side I as the bottom, with all 4 loose plates at the bottom as well. Fill the 2 empty vertical sides with a single plate each, by FLIPPING them up one at a time. If plate #34 appears on any of the sides, then knock down the other one first and then plate #34 last, which will place it on top of the stack

If plate #34 does not appear, then knock down the 2 plates. Next, FLIP all 4 loose plates from the bottom to the front side. Next, SLIDE all 4 loose plates from the front to the bottom side. Once again, fill the 2 empty veritcal sides, and use the same method as before to climb plate #58 to the top of the stack.

Once the plate is on top of the stack, merely FLIP it up to side IV. Afterwards, fill the last vertical side with a single plate. This will prevent binding from occurring during the following moves.

### Solve Side V.

#### Important note: Do NOT disturb the plates that are already affixed to sides I, II, III or IV.

Start off with side V as the front and side I as the bottom, with all 3 loose plates at the bottom as well. Peer through the holes of side VI. If plate #65 is not on the top of the stack, then:

FLIP the top loose plate up to the front side, and FLIP up the other loose plates to the back. Then FLIP the front plate down to the bottom first, and FLIP the other loose plates down to the bottom last.

Once again, peer through the holes of side VI. If plate #65 is still not on the top, then repeat the above method one more time. Now that plate #65 is on top of the stack, merely FLIP it up to side V, and proceed with the following moves.

### Solve Side VI.

#### Important note: Do NOT disturb the plates that are already affixed to sides I, II, III, IV or V

Start off with side VI as the front and side II as the bottom, with both loose plates at the bottom as well. Peer through the holes of side VI. If plate #78 is not on the top of the stack, then:

FLIP the top loose plate up to the front side, and FLIP up the other loose plate to the back. Then FLIP the front plate down to the bottom first, and FLIP the other loose plate down to the bottom last.

Now that plate #65 is on top of the stack, merely FLIP it up to side VI, and proceed with the following moves.
