behind the Game
In an ancient city in India monks in a temple were asked to move
a pile of 64 sacred disks from one location to another. The disks
were fragile and so only one could be carried at a time nor could
one be placed on top of a smaller, less valuable disk.
So, the monks started moving disks back and forth, between the
original pile, the pile at the new location, and the intermediate
location, always keeping the piles in order (largest on the bottom,
smallest on the top).
The legend also says that before the monks would make the final
move to complete the new pile in the new location, the temple
would turn to dust and the world will end!
Hint: Try changing the number of blocks in
play. Start with 3 blocks.
