Puzzles by Type > Sequential Move


mmmsmall.gifSequential move puzzles require a series of steps or moves to solve the puzzle and reach your goal.  Usually there are many steps to follow so it's hard to memorise and therefore even if you do the puzzle you may not be able to repeat the solution without a lot of practice. 

Sliding block puzzles are probably the best know in this category.  Rush Hour has been a top seller since it's release by Binary Arts (later to become Think Fun) in 1996.  But this is recent puzzle history.  Back in 1932 J. H. Flemming patented the popular sliding block puzzle called Dad's Puzzle in England although it may have been known earlier than this in France as the L'Ane Rouge.   Variations of this puzzle then became very popular in Japan during WWII; one called "Daughter in a Box" and another called "Break Through the Enemy's Defences" were made for civilians to pass the time in air raid shelters.  This type puzzle is still very popular to this day with versions like our handsome wooden puzzle Major Migraine Maker and others.

 




Tower of Hanoi n-ary puzzle Tower of Hanoi n-ary puzzle


QTY:





The objective of the puzzle is to move the entire stack of disks and the ball on top to another rod, obeying the following simple rules:
1.Only one disk may be moved at a time.
2.Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the stacks and placing it on top of another stack.
3.No disk may be placed on top of a smaller disk or the ball.

Mathematically this is a type of "n-ary" puzzle meaning each move has "n" number of state - in this case 2 states being binary.  Read more about n-ary puzzles and see others we have here.

Tiles - Wood selection



Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange  - San Francisco, USA, August 2009
Presented by Brian Young.  Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia.  Designed by Brian Young. 

This sliding block puzzle is very different to others.  Firstly, you cannot touch the tiles that you must slide because they are behind perspex.  You must use dexterity to do this.  Generally more than one block at a time will be moving which means you must think many moves ahead.  Secondly, you use the blocks that you are sliding to deliver the ball bearing from top to bottom of the puzzle.  This is like a maze because at the same time you are sliding the blocks you are forming the maze-like track that the ball bearing must take to arrive at the bottom.   Most of the pieces are different; that is the tracks in each tile that carry the ball bearing are different.
