This binary puzzle takes 64 moves to get the first piece out and then 32 for the next peice, and I’m going to guess that, unless you take his shortcuts, the next pieces come out in 16, 8, 4, and 2 moves.

Lee’s clutch box is a tricky box. If someone gave me the clutch box without telling me how to open it, I feel pretty confident that I could lose weeks of my life to trying to figure it out.
