I have thought of a 9-level "Tower of Hanoi" mutation that I call the step pyramid puzzle because it resembles a classic Maya step pyramid with a square temple house on top of a larger terraced pyramid. 9 ______ 8 ______ 7 ____________ 6 ______________ 5 ________________ 4 __________________ 3 ____________________ 2 ______________________ 1 ________________________ Solve this puzzle just like the Hanoi puzzle except for these changes, 1) Upper stories 8 and 9, which comprise a two-storied "temple house" are identically sized parts and either can be set atop of their counterpart. 2) The 2nd and the 5th terraces are special. If either of these terraces are moved, then an extra move of the next terrace pending is immeadeatly made without being counted. Levels 2 & 5 can be indicated by a different color from the rest of the levels. It is supposed that if one move is made each day. With these rules in effect, the puzzle will take ??? days to complete.
