The blocks had 6 faces. Each face had a different pattern on it. So he could have put in "hand, squiggle, bird" but that wouldn't have counteracted the protection spell. He puts in the combination hand hand hand, which we later learn is the only correct combination. This has been resolved already though. A telltale guy on the first page explained that it was the remnant of a cut puzzle.
