PEG SOLITAIRE

No one really knows when Peg solitaire was invented. Some stories trace it to prisoners during the French Revolution. Most likely the game is even older. There are probably variations in all cultures dating to antiquity.

The object of this game is to remove all the pegs in the least amount of time and finish with only one peg in the target hole.

Pegs are moved on the board by jumping over another peg where permitted by a vacant hole. The peg that was "jumped over" is then removed.

Continue until all but one peg remains.

Good Luck!
