Shouldn't this be in the mathematical forum Whim? My brain gave up the struggle at about 15

No, why? It's a normal puzzle.

Code:4 choices for R
2 choices for A that move toward an edge
2 choices for I
2 choices for N

1 choice for A that moves toward a vertex
2 choices for I that move toward an edge
2 choices for N

1 choice for I that moves toward a vertex
3 choices for N


4*(2*2*2 + 1*(2*2 + 1*3)) = 4*(8 + (4 + 3)) = 4*15 = 60
