Come on People. Do you even know where this game came from? It is a very ancient game by Hindu prists and the like. The French mathematician, Edouard Lucas, reinvented the Tower of Hanoi (sometimes referred to as the Tower of Brahma or the End of the World Puzzle) in 1883. The least amount of moves for 5 disks is 31. yes 31. for 64 disks 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 moves. So enjoy if you can do it under 60 moves., then your smart. under 50, very acute, under 40, most impressive., under 31, your am idiot and a cheater. Post your scores here people and relax. * finishes with 50 moves *

yeah, 7 plates there Haloraven, thus (n=7) 2^n -1 = 127 moves, you weren`t even half done! once the pattern emerges, you don`t really have to be that acute either, so barring any major snafu`s, one should be able to keep his or her score below 150. **actually finishes in 140 moves (mouse slips ;)**

http://www.mazeworks.com/hanoi/ 127 is the lowest number of moves you can do this in. haloraven, don`t let them bust on you... I admire you for knowing and posting about the puzzle. More ppl should be as willing to edumicate themselves. Good for anyone else who found a problem with his logic, means you were paying attention as well.

I`ve written programs to play this game... it`s interesting to see how much longer the game gets by simply adding an extra plate (it grows exponentially.)

kathaclysm: he didn`t know. holy crap! you think somebody could pull that off the top of his head??? he looked up the puzzle and found what he thought was the answer. however, he didn`t use the right number of rings.

lmao, i love it how ppl lie about their scores. how anyone got under 127 i simply dont know how you could explain getting less than that. 1 got 163, after trying it twice. theres a pattern, something like if the column of blocks you want to move from is even, then move the smallest piece to the middle, and go from there. if the column of blocks you want to move from has an odd number of blocks, then you want to move the smallest piece farther away. of course the trick to the puzzle is the bigger the column you have to move, the more moves its going to take you. thats my theory atleast, i dont need to go to google, type in hannoi towers and copy paste a definition.

one more time for all the special ppl who subtracted from their score: nunzio77, micky2, haloraven,thomson, Wildcat07070,jamuk2612.

omg<<<<<<<<<<<<<22222222222222222222.gh,fgklhjmfkgh i cant get the drating last 3 plates................................................................................................................!!!!

Ok, i followed the hole mathematical thing and agree with 127... but i did it with less than 70 in the game... and im not getting how.... there must be some flaw... Can anyone solve this mistery? And people, the guys who are saying that did in less then 127 may be not cheating... Im SO confused

w0ot w0ot, lol, i did it in 332 moves! at least i completed it :D, its the thought that counts,lol, now i have a brain cramp...ouch, im 13 so wut can u expect,lol

5 moves and i won. u just have to delete ur moveson the screen so they think u did it in 5 moves. evry time u make a move u delete it from their memory

I really, superduperly suck. I got it in 629... Well After I figured out how to move the plates in the right ways, if I knew that earilier, then maybeI would make in less moves.

- You can not put a larger plate on top of a smaller plate.:-)

Its pretty simple if you know the formula for moving the plates.

Sorry, but you did say you finished with an impossible score.

I got all the plates out of the middle in 147 moves but I didn`t know if that was the end?

i`m so stupid!!

There is a really simple pattern to figure out how to do it.

one more time for all the special ppl who subtracted from their score: nunzio77, micky2, haloraven,thomson, Wildcat07070,jamuk2612.

double you tee ff guys... wtf.

Can anyone solve this mistery?

And people, the guys who are saying that did in less then 127 may be not cheating...

Im SO confused
