```Here is a start.  You can delete the zeros:

> x=c(1,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,
+ 0,0,0,0,0,0,1,2,2,2,2,2,0,3,3,0,4,4,0,0,0,0,0,0)
> x=array(x,dim=c(3,6,5))
> apply(x,3,function(.mat){
+     rows <- table(apply(.mat,1,function(z){
+         paste(z,collapse=' ')
+     }))
+     names(rows[which.max(rows)])
+ })
[1] "1 0 0 0 0 0" "1 2 3 0 0 0" "1 2 3 4 0 0" "1 2 3 4 0 0" "2 2 3 4 0 0"
