Tower Challenge

Tower Challenge

Spring 2012 Puzzles
Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: Winning Moves Games
Price: $9.95

This single-player puzzle requires one to move six different-sized plastic disks from one "tower" (plastic pole) to another until one has replicated the smallest-down-to-largest stack of disks on one of the two other towers. Only one disk may be moved at a time and the player can never put a disk on top of one that's smaller.

It's not as simple as it seems, and this brainteaser requires problem-solving and strategic thinking. The fewer moves it takes one to solve the puzzle, the higher one's skill level is.
