Add the "Towers of Hanoi" puzzle/game to the list. It is the one with
3 pegs and a few disks of various sizes that start stacked biggest to
smallest on one peg... The goal is to move the whole stack from one peg
to another, only moving one at a time and never putting a large disk on
top of a smaller disk. Try to figure out the algorithm to solve it
automatically. You can build the engine to use a text display, or try
to use a gui.
This is one that many CompSci students have to do in the first year...
