Product Description

Invented by a mathematician in 1883, The Tower of Hanoi ring puzzle has challenged monks and mathematicians for centuries. Based on fable from Benares, India, it is believed that when the tower is completely moved the universe will end. Don't fret. There are only 2 holy rules that must be obliged in order to complete the tasks. You don't have to possess magical powers to move this holy wooden temple. Start by moving only one disk at a time and remember that at no time can a large disc be placed on top of a smaller one-the rest is child's play. Dimensions: 3 1/2" x 8 1/4"" x 1 3/8"

Ok this product looks very promising but can not be played. I love the towers of hanoi and this looked very well made and had a cool box for a stand or for storage. However, it is obvious no one tested to see if the product actually can be put together and played before it was sent off.

Pros:
- high quality wood look and finish
- it is mobile, in that the all the pieces can be put back into the box for storage

Cons:
- the three poles(towers) used in the puzzle do not fit very snugly into the holes(while they do fit, they are very loose). Doesn't seem like a big deal but the whole premise of this puzzle is to pick up rings from one pole(tower) and transfer them to another. Well every time you pick up a ring from a pole you also pick up the pole itself since it does not fit snugly into the hole...making the game unplayable. Since you have to pick up and move rings the entire time what good is it if you have to keep re-seating the tower pole back into its hole.

* with that said I did manage to get this to work properly by applying some carpenters glue into the holes which the towers sit...once dried the puzzle works perfectly the way the designer intended. However, one caveat is the puzzle is no longer mobile as you can not take the tower poles off and back into the box for storage since they are permanently glued in now.

Very close to a perfect product but this one flaw truely makes this product unplayable out of the box even though there is a work around.

Before ordering this item, I read with some concern the other two reviews on Amazon.
Both reviews indicated that the puzzle was poorly made and therefore difficult/impossible to play easily.

I am happy to report that the puzzle I received was in perfect order and played beautifully. Perhaps the preceeding two reviews alerted the company to problems which were then fixed, or perhaps, as these seem to be handmade and made overseas, that the product quality is variable. I know only that the puzzle I received from this company was in perfect c

I shall enjoy the Towers of Hanoi for years to come. After the initial challenge of solving the puzzle, the orderly and soothing activity of moving the disks serves as a meditation, and the math behid the puzzle is fascinating as well. In fact, I have a recording of a beautiful musical composition that reflects the math underlying the puzzle. Fascinating and Tranquil.

It is my hope that the maker will construct a version in metal, with many more rings.

I returned the game because it was poorly made. The holes that were supposed to be in the center of the discs were off-center, so they didn't stack properly. Some of the holes weren't cut big enough, so they didn't even fit on the pegs. The pegs don't fit well into the holes that were cut for them, so they fall out easily while the game is being played.

This puzzle comes in many forms and has entertained puzzlers of all ages for many years.I first came across it as a child and ,after reading about it,made a homemade one of things laying around the house.Some ardboard or wood for the discs and some sticks,or dowels .This one is actually quite arttractive and makes for a very decorative ornament.You can find several versions here on Amazon.It is called different things,usually Tower of Hanoi,but also Tower of Brahma.It is also made to resemble a multi-layered pagoda.,etc.The prices can vaty all overv the map.I once picked up one ,quite well made of wood in a Dollar store.I am sure there are ones made of ivory,ceramics,clay,metal.Ththe most basic one has 5 discs and from there there is no limit to the number.
There are several legends about the origin of this puzzle,and who first conceived it may be lost to antiquity.

A French Mathematician Edouard Lucus (1842-1891), who wrote a book on Recreational Mathematics, claimed he invented The Tower of Hanoi in 1883.He made a giant version more than a meter high.He also created the legend calling it The Tower of Brahma,and that in the great temple of Benares,there is a brass plate on which three vertical diamond shafts are fixed.On the shafts are mounted 64 golden discs,all of different sizes.At the time of Creation,the god Brahma placed all the discs on one pin,in order of size,with the largest at the bottom.The Hindu priests unceasingly transfer the discs from peg to peg,one at a time,never placing a larger disc on a smaller one.When all the discs have been transferred to a second pin,the universe will end.
Mathematically the number of moves to move any number( n) of discs is 2 to the nth power minus 1.it would For 3 discs it would be ( 2 x 2 X 2 ) -1 or 7 moves.

I had one of these before in plastic and it was a sturdy great one.
This one is made of an OK looking wood. (The picture is very accurate)

The CON's on this one is the box. It's nice to be able to store the whole thing when you're done with it.

The BAD's are the pegs. They are wobbly and need to be glued so they'll stay solid, which defeats the whole purpose of the storage box. They came off and move constantly. Even with little use.
I have mixed feeling about this item. Make your own judgement based on what I listed above.
