The purpose of the game, as with the Lucky 7 puzzle, is to return
the counters into their Home position, position they were in before reshuffling. The puzzle consists of several counters
placed on two intersecting circles. There are six points of control: the two central counters and the two pairs of counters adjacent to the central ones.
In the case of 8 counters, these are numbered 1, 8, 7, 3, 4, 5. Clicking on the upper counters induces clockwise rotations.
Clicking on the lower counters results in counterclockwise rotations. Left counters rotate the left circle. Right counters rotate the right circle.
The middle ones handle the whole set.
If the "Cycles" box is checked, a permutation of counters needed to solve the puzzle is displayed. The permutation is presented
as a product of cycles.
