A test of tactics, logic and strategy, the objective of this puzzle is to move all eight disks from the furthest left peg to the furthest right peg. It might sound simple enough, but this puzzle is far from easy! To move the full set of eight disks across the pegs is a feat that requires 255 individual moves.
Inspired by the stories of the Orient, tales are told of an ancient temple with sixty-four gold disks mounted on three pegs. The monks in the temple were instructed to transfer all the disks from one peg to another. When all the disks had been transferred it would mean the end of the universe…however to complete a puzzle of that size could take up to 585 billion years!
