Puzzle

US Version

Now here's a tasty puzzle for you. Your task is to take that big stack of pancakes on the left plate and move them to the plate on the far right. In doing so, however, you need to follow these rules:

  • You can move only one pancake at a time.
  • A pancake can never rest on another pancake smaller than itself.

Feel free to shift things about as much as you like and to use the middle plate in completing the puzzle.

UK Version

Here's a tasty puzzle for you.

Can you move the pile of pancakes from the blue plate on the left to the red plate on the right? Wait, though, it's not as easy as it sounds. You must follow these rules:

  • You can only move one pancake at a time.
  • You cannot place a pancake on top of another one that is smaller than itself.

You can use the middle plate and move the pancakes as many times as you like.
