See Appendix A for indicator identification reference.
See Appendix B for battery identification reference.
See Appendix C for port identification reference.
The module consists of three wooden rods and six wooden disks, all of different sizes, stacked in ascending order of size on the leftmost rod, the smallest being at the top. To disarm the module, move all the necessary disks to the rightmost rod, obeying the following rules:
- Only one disk can be moved at a time.
- Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the stacks and placing it on top of another stack or on an empty rod.
- No larger disk may be placed on top of a smaller disk. Doing so will result in a strike.
To move a disk, click on the base of the rod you're moving from followed by the base of the rod you're moving to.
Take note of the following set of numbers:
- Each digit in the serial number
- Number of batteries
- Number of indicators
- Number of ports
If any of the previous is not between 1 and 6, ignore it. Then, number each disk in ascending order of size, with the smallest being disk 1. For each disk, if that disk's number is in the above set, that disk must be in the rightmost rod for the module to solve. If it is not, then it must be in the center rod.
