icon The Swap-O-Tron : The Swap-O-Tron : 1 East (0)  
Apparently I need to hit the Swap-O-Tron on two consecutive turns three separate times, with only one turn delay between each. (No need on the fourth plate... unless that's the challenge.)

But I'm struggling to see how to do this at all, since I keep losing trapdoors. Any advice?

I'd figured out that much, it's the execution I'm having trouble with.

I guess you found out, but when you push the mimic, it will be stunned for one turn.

Regarding execution, some initial positioning move be of help here:

I'm gonna need some help beyond initial positioning. Trying it out, I can get THIS far before I screw something up:


From here, from what I can gather, at least, I inevitably HAVE to waste two moves if I want to keep the mimic; and I HAVE to keep the mimic. Now, I have gotten a bit further using stunning to my advantage to desynchronize rotations, thusly resulting in this:


But even still... No dice. What am I missing here?
