1 | 38 seconds | Paulo Peixoto | with a touch screen and the minimum moves necessary ^-^ i think there should be a guinness world record for the fastest player of ToH | 20070807 |

2 | 40.62 seconds | Brennan Vincent | Done with a Towers of Hanoi game for the computer and fast fingers. I wish more people were interested in ToH and I encourage competition. | 20060701 |

3 | 53.55 seconds | Peter Greenwood | After seeing this puzzle on SCC, I had to try, because I know I am very fast at it. Timed this with Dan Knights cube timer, and used a calculator program for the towers on my TI-83PSE. I broke 60!!! So whats next? I encourage competition! | 20050804 |

4 | 54 seconds | Kevin Khan | n/a | 20060309 |

5 | 54.87 seconds | Christopher Yi | This is real easy if you have quick and hands and you know what to do. =) I can probably break this record because i ended up idling for 2-3 seconds. Did this with my math teacher's towers of hanoi set :)). | 20060210 |

6 | 1 minute 12 seconds | Alden Wilson | n/a | 20080514 |

7 | 1 minute 15.70 seconds | Caillan Fellows | WHOA!!!!! | 20090507 |

8 | 1 minute 16 seconds | Arun Jayendran | I solved using a mouse based computer Tower of Hanoi game. Really easy to solve having known the basic trick.. profile:http://www.orkut.com/Profile.aspx?uid=11255587025457993933 | 20070707 |

9 | 1 minute 30 seconds | Robin Westhaver | Using the traditional 3 peg wooden set. The physical aspect of having to get each ring through a peg each move is really slow! I need to find a computer version too, so it becomes pure mental speed as suppose to physical speed. | 20081123 |

10 | 1 minute 40 seconds | Jeff Goetz | Once I found the trick to this puzzle it became very easy. With more pieces, even though takes longer it's still easy. Mine goes up to 10 pieces, and that takes about 30 minutes. | |

11 | 1 minute 52 seconds | Alex Powell | First half was nearly perfect. It is much harder with 8 rings than 7, and I was surprised by the difference. | |

12 | 2 minutes 10 seconds | Andrew Nelson | I'm getting faster. | 20060616 |

13 | 4 minutes 24 seconds | Joshua Woelmer | i saw this record and immediately had to do it. My friend had written a java applet for a school project, so that's what I used- a bit hard to use, but that can be fixed. 132 moves- made a small mistake in there that cost me 5 moves from optimal :- I can get better! | 20070529 |

14 | 7 minutes 31 seconds | Joey Spadafora | This was not an optimized solve, and I'm sure this time can be improved upon a whole lot..I need to work on figuring out exactly how the recursion works.but I was hoping that for one time for a little bit, I could be first in something. Tower of Hanoi is the stack of discs on top of each other, where you cannot move a larger onto a smaller, or you break the rules. I encourage plenty of competition, and will improve this time if necessary. | |

15 | 1 hour 29 minutes | Brian McCabe | Using a single suit of 13 cards as a 'tower' and using one hand only for moving the cards 8191 moves completed whilst on guard duty as a young soldier in Malta in 1951. | 20070518 |
