A generalized version of Elephant Spin-Out. All elephants allows three different states instead of two.

Crazy Elephant Dance is a generalized version of SpinOut. Instead of discs, we have a line of 5 elephants on a slider, and each elephant has three possible states: 0 - facing upwards, 1 - facing to the right, and 2 - facing downwards.

The uniform condition is split into two parts in this case:
1. An elephant may move between states 0 and 1, if the one immediately to the right is in position 2, and all further right are in position 2.
2. An elephant may move between states 1 and 2, if the one immediately to the right is in position 0, and all further right are in position 2.
As for the SpinOut, the second part of the conditions above arises from the fact that the slider and elephants may only move out to the right when in state 2.

Like the original Elephant SpinOut this puzzle has a recursive solution.

This puzzle was an entry in the design competition for IPP 25 in Helsinki 2005.
