Towers of Hanoi Hire and Rental


Towers of Hanoi is a superb puzzle to really get you thinking. Can you move the tower, consisting of 5 different sized blocks from point A to B in the fewest moves possible?

The objective of the puzzle is to move the entire tower from point to point, obeying the following simple rules:

  • Only one block can be moved at a time
  • Each move consists of taking the upper block from one of the towers and placing it on top of another block or on an empty area.
  • No larger block may be placed on top of a smaller block.

With 5 blocks, the puzzle can be solved in 31 moves. Can you do it quickly and beat the opposite team?
