Triangular Ring (Posted on 2008-01-09) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Each of the triangular numbers that are below 1000 is written on a separate card. Some of these cards are then placed in a circle so that, viewed from the center, the right-hand digit of each card matches the left-hand digit of the card to its right. No tricks are used such as turning a card upside-down.

What's the maximum number of digits that can appear on such a subset of the cards?
