The Hanoi tower is a mathematical game or puzzle. It's simple objective is to move a tower of disks from one rod to another one. There are only two rules:
1. You can only move one disk at a time from the top of one stack to another rod.
2. You cannot place a larger disk on top of a smaller disk.
This puzzle challenges all ages. We've had adult friends work on it for over an hour and yet our children have solved it in twenty minutes. There is a formula you can follow--a pattern of movement. But we'll let you figure that out.
TWO VERSIONS TO CHOOSE FROM:
"Standard Base" has the a single solid wood base with disks. Sent unassembled. You can glue the rods into the base if desired.
"Storage Base" has the two-part base that is a box for putting all the disks and rods into and stores flat. Magnets hold it together.
