The puzzle "The Tower of Hanoi" was invented by the French mathematician Edouard Lucas in 1883. There are three poles one of which contains threaded disks sorted from the biggest one at the bottom to the smallest one at the top. You can take disks from one pole and put them on another one, but you can lift only one disk at a time, and put only a smaller disk at the top of the bigger one. So, the goal of the game "Tower of Hanoi" is to remove disks from the central pole and collect them at another empty pole.
