Binary puzzles, ternary puzzles and more...

It’s not known who first looked at the old Chinese Ring puzzle and thought that the movement of the rings in the solution would have two states equating to on/of or 0 and 1 used in computer binary code. But they did. And so a new group of puzzle classifications was made.

Since the Chinese ring puzzle first appeared there’s been not only binary puzzles, but ternary puzzles where pieces have three states and more. Right up to the current record holder Generation Lock – a 15-ary puzzle.

Many of these puzzles require a lot of moves to complete due to the recursive nature of the solution. Lucky not many have the number of the Generation Lock – 341,718,750. Yes, that’s 340 million+ !
