What, no takers yet?! Surely one of you gurus would LOVE concocting a puzzle like this.

In case anybody is thinking no such animal is possible, here is one example of a legal 8x8x8 grid:

Each level:

ABCDEFGH

CDEFGHAB

EFGHABCD

GHABCDEF

BCDEFGHA

DEFGHABC

FGHABCDE

HABCDEFG

where the letters translate as follows:

Level 1: ABCDEFGH=12345678

Level 2: ABCDEFGH=56781234

Level 3: ABCDEFGH=23456781

Level 4: ABCDEFGH=67812345

Level 5: ABCDEFGH=34567812

Level 6: ABCDEFGH=78123456

Level 7: ABCDEFGH=45678123

Level 8: ABCDEFGH=81234567
