Tower of Hanoi n-ary puzzle



Tower of Hanoi n-ary puzzle

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.

The puzzle was first publicized in the West by the French mathematician Édouard Lucas in 1883 but there are many variations of legends around priests moving golden disks from one pole to another and when all disks are moved the world will end.

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.

The measures:  180mm x 165mm  Puzzle is 60mm tall.
The puzzle is made from wood and is presented in a drawstring cloth bag with a solution inside.
