Once cut out and assembled, the 6 shapes form pieces of a 6-piece burr puzzle. The pieces fit together in only one way. Once the burr is solved, the message "BRING 2 HUNT HEADQUARTERS" is easily read.
Although not necessary for solving this puzzle, there in an online interactive applet on IBM's web site than can be used to solve 6-piece burr puzzles. When the solved puzzle was brought to hunt headquarters, the answer word orthohydrogen was given to the team.
