Hardly surprising, the problem is not very well described. The notation for the example moves seems a little odd too: clearly the six numbers in a move are numbers of pebbles to be taken from each edge of the tetrahedron, but nowhere does the writer define in which order the edges are considered.

I suppose the problem is a variation of the game of Nim.
