Hi, there,

While I'm not a big believer in
disclosing too much information
from 3rd parties who are providing
clues as to how to faster solve
puzzles, I will define 3 basic
approaches to this sort of puzzle.

The reason that I utilize the number
3 is the number of the types of
blocks: 2.

Thus, one approach is to
attempt to ignore the larger
blocks and utilize only the smaller
type of block to reach the goal.
Another approach is the converse of
that one (focusing instead on only
the larger blocks). A third method is
of course to utilize both sort of
blocks.

Obviously, more "stacking" possibilities
are available for this third approach.
It is more dynamic. So the question is:
how does one stack *both* sorts of blocks
in such a way that it is advantageous toward
reaching the goal.

Perhaps, you've already discovered this much
and are just waiting for that "woman's
intuition" , that moment where one exhales
"aha" and a revelation is had.

En francais, on dit, je crois, un "apercu"
mais je n'en suis pas sur.

In that latter case, I recommend resting
from obsessively contemplating the puzzle
(and as an aside, when you do return to
contemplating it, play it through first in
your mind with your eyes closed before undertaking
the actual solution of the puzzle) and dwelling
on a mental puzzle of logic which I will
include in the off-topic segment of the
discussion board.

Take care,

Adam
