On the Subject of Reordered Keys
Seeing triple now, are we?
See Appendix in Ordered Keys for identifying modules in Ordered Keys family.
This module consists of 6 coloured keys, each of which is labelled with a coloured number.
These keys turn black when highlighted, and remain black when pressed.
The possible colours for both the keys and the numbers labelling them are: (R)ed, (G)reen, (B)lue, (C)yan, (M)agenta, and (Y)ellow.
Any of the numbers 1 - 6 may appear on each of the keys.
The information given by each key is used to locate two cells, each within a 6x6 grid, which in turn will be used to locate a cell in a third 6x6 grid, which will have a unique value in the range 1 - 6.
One of the six keys is a pivot, which is used to determine the correct configuration of keys to be submitted, and acts as the submit button for the current sequence of keys.
Pressing any two of the other keys will swap them and their values.
The module will reset if-
- the pivot key is pressed.
- any key is pressed after six swaps.
In six swaps or fewer, rearrange the keys until the configuration of key values is correct, avoiding forbidden configurations, and submit it by pressing the pivot key to advance to the next of two stages.
Submitting an incorrect configuration or failing to avoid forbidden configurations will cause a strike to be issued.
