Scorer, Grundy and Smith define a variation of the towers of Hanoi puzzle where the smallest disk moves freely and two disks can exchange positions when they differ in size by 1, are on different pegs, and each is top-most on its peg. Each vertex here is a configuration of discs on spindles. Each edge is a step (move or exchange) between configurations.
