Product Description

The game called the Towers of Hanoi was invented by the French mathematician Edouard Lucas in 1883 and since then it has been both a popular puzzle and a well-known mathematical problem that is an excellent illustration of the general concept of recursion. This puzzle is known by most mathematicians and a very large number of people who like either puzzles or elementary mathematical problems.

The problem is that you have to move the wooden circles from one to another without placing a larger piece on a smaller piece. Sounds easy enough until you try it.

In 1972 I owned this same puzzle. Back then it sat on my coffee table where all my friends & guest would try to solve the puzzle. I lost it after many apartment & house moving episodes. I've never stopped thinking about it. If it were not for the age of the computer I'd NEVER have been able to track this AMAZING, HIGHLY ENJOYABLE, MIND BENDING, ENTERTANING PUZZLE down again. For years I've thought about & wanted to obtain it again & I've tried to discribe it to friends, family & co-workers, now I can show it to them & let them try it themselves. I loved it then & I'll love it again when it arrives in the mail. I can hardly wait to show off. Thank you for putting a name to it.

I absolutly love this puzzle. It is not a difficult puzzle, nor is the concept terribley difficult. However, by the time you hir 8+ rings, it becomes a chalenge to keep track of exactly what you were trying to do. By 10 rings, it is truely a marvel of organisation, and memory.

I was thrilled to find another tower of hanoi! This was a staple on the coffee table when I was growing up and I never knew the name. I've been telling my son about it and how challenging it was, but also great fun! Thanks for letting me share a family tradition with him; especially something that doesn't require batteries or sitting in front of the television!

All you say about this puzzle is true, and yours looks very attractive. When I taught teachers, I constantly recommended it because if a table is formed with a= the number of discs, b=the number of moves needed to move the tower, one can write a very nice exponential equation describing the function. I hope you renew the offering, for these are hard to find. Benedicta, O.S.H. also known as Andrea Sender E-Mail: benedicta_@osh.org

I remember I tried this when I was in college. I was so engrossed I lost all concept of space and time; and yes I did solve it. Eventually life goes on, and I lost the puzzle. I've been looking for one ever since. I'm a grandparent now and I'm estatic I've finally found another. Of course, I would start her out with only 3 discs; but you never know! She might turn out to be a quick learner.
