      I believe there are only thirty-six ways that all twenty vertexes of a
      dodecahedron (or faces of an icosahedraon if you like) can be sequentially
      connected so that each vertex/face is crossed only once.
      These can be subdivided into eighteen left and right-handed opposites, which
      can then be subclassed into six variations of one basic sequence and twelve
      other distinct sequences.
