Towers of HanOINK!

All this list making and organization is great, but let's have some fun!  The app is based on the classic Towers of Hanoi game.  Remember that game with the 3 wooden rods and different sized discs?  You could only move one at a time and you couldn't put a larger one on top of a smaller one. This is that game in app form using different sized animals instead of discs.
