Assign letters to each face of three cubes so that you can use the cubes to spell each of the 12 months of the year. Use lowercase three-letter English abbreviations for the names of all twelve months (e.g., "jan", "feb", "mar").
HintOnly lowercase letters will work.
AnswerThe lower case is vital because in order to spell out every month, you'll need 19 different letters (abcdefgjlmnoprstuvy) but you only have 18 faces to put the letters on. However, the "n" can be turned upside down to become a "u". The same goes for "d" and "p".
With these at hand, the blocks can be assigned:
Block 1: a, c, f, n/u, s, v
Block 2: b, d/p, l, m, n/u, t
Block 3: e, g, j, o, r, y
