    Hi, This puzzle seems similar to a Rubik s Cube, but doesn t require 3D thinking (and so might be more suitable for a 2d computer display): 1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3

      Hi,

      This puzzle seems similar to a Rubik's Cube, but doesn't require 3D
      thinking (and so might be more suitable for a 2d computer display):

      1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3
      1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3
      1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3

      4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6
      4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6
      4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6

      7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9
      7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9
      7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9

      The objective is the same as Rubik's cube: each grid must have only
      one number/color.

      You can rotate an entire row or column of 9 numbers, but rotations
      must be done 3 steps at a time.

      For example, rotating the second row to the right yields:

      1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3
      3 3 3 1 1 1 2 2 2
      1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3

      4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6
      4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6
      4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6

      7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9
      7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9
      7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9

      Is this an original puzzle? If not, where I can find info on it?
