The Chinese Ring Puzzle

Elephant SpinOut® is a modern variant of the ancient Chinese Ring Puzzle - a favorite since 200AD. They might not have known it back then, but it uses sequential movement based on binary code logic. In solving the puzzle, you are engaging in a mathematical process called "recursion", something which is very important for computer programming. In our puzzle it means that each elephant can be in only one of two positions at any given time. Getting all the elephants to line up takes a good bit of sequential binary code breaking. Yikes!
