In this puzzle, a (variable) number of rings are placed in a “tower”, largest to smallest. The object is to move the rings, one at a time, onto two additional towers, until all of the rings are on the last tower.


Guess the letters in the words or phrases selected by the computer before you run out of moves. This game will stretch your knowledge and your vocabulary.

This keyboardcontrolled game is based on the television series Dr. Who. The goal is to help Dr. Who escape the Daleks (evil robots). To win, you will need your knowledge of twodimensional geometry, logical thinking, and planning skills.


This card game may seem simple at first, but it will surprise you. The cards have four attributes: colour, shape, number, and shading. To score, you must find three cards that are either all alike or all different within each of the four categories. Mentally juggling all four categories is more challenging than it sounds!


Awari is an ancient game that was played using stones and holes in the ground. The object is to capture the greatest number of stones.


A threedimensional version of the popular game tictactoe. The game has four layers, each with a 4by4 grid. Use this game to improve your ability to think in three dimensions.


How well do you know the factors of numbers from 1 to 100? Take turns (with another player or with the computer) identifying the factors of a number chosen by your opponent. The game ends when there are no more numbers and factors to select. The winner is the player with the greatest sum. Play a few times to develop a strategy!


The Game of Life uses biological growth patterns and mathematical patterning to simulate the growth or death of a culture. The object is to create a living system that is able to sustain itself.


This game challenges you to unscramble 16 numbers in a 4by4 grid. The catch is that you cannot move individual squares; you have to work with a block of numbers at a time. Although it looks simple, unravelling the scramble will test your patterning skills.


Your goal: get five of your pieces in a row on this 8by4 grid before the computer does. The catch: there is a mirror that doubles the number of squares and doubles each move. There are six levels of difficulty.


This applet simulates the original Nim game. You and the computer take turns removing objects from the rows; whoever removes the last object wins. There are many versions of Nim available, so you can use your favourite search engine to find variations on this game.


The Fruit Game is an interactive Nimtype game. The object is to beat the computer by removing the last piece of fruit from the table.


The object of this game is to break the fivedigit code in the fewest number of trials. After each trial, the computer gives you feedback on which digits are not in the code; which digits are in the code but in the wrong place; and which digits you have identified correctly.


Hex7 is a strategy game that requires players to build a path across a playing surface made up of hexagons.


Pentominoes a set of shapes, each made up of five squares. The challenge is to completely tile a section of the plane. Pentominoes can be rotated or flipped before being placed.


The applet allows you to manipulate a Rubik ʼs Cube in three dimensions. More challenging puzzles, such as a 5by5by5 cube are available.


The Chaos Game makes use of the Sierpinski Triangle and fractals to present a challenging puzzle. There are four levels of difficulty provided. 

The pieces in this jigsaw puzzle are not the correct size. Each piece must be scaled before it can be added to the puzzle. There is a time limit to determine the correct scale for each piece.
