From the Wikipedia article:
The Tower of Hanoi (also called the Tower of Brahma or Lucas' Tower, and sometimes pluralised) is a mathematical game or puzzle. It consists of three rods, and a number of disks of different sizes which can slide onto any rod. The puzzle starts with the disks in a neat stack in ascending order of size on one rod, the smallest at the top, thus making a conical shape.
The objective of the puzzle is to move the entire stack to another rod, obeying the following rules:

  • Only one disk may be moved at a time.
  • Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the rods and sliding it onto another rod, on top of the other disks that may already be present on that rod.
  • No disk may be placed on top of a smaller disk.

With three disks, the puzzle can be solved in seven moves.

Printed it this week for my Algebra II class.
Worked perfectly.


this looks like a really hard game to beat. I am probably going to print this soon.

I love this game! The 10 piece version is about a 20 minute puzzle. And I figure if you edit the script and make a 15 piece puzzle it would take 24 straight hours to solve!!
