Game Instructions –
This is a computer version of peg solitaire, a game invented by an aristocrat from 18th century France.
In this game, you have to try to eliminate as many pegs as possible. If you play it well, you’ll end up with only one peg remaining.
At first, the only empty space is the one in the middle. You can make a peg jump horizontally or vertically over another peg into a vacant space. The peg that gets jumped over is eliminated.
Keep making moves to eliminate all the pegs you can.
Use the left mouse button to select the pegs; if the selected peg has only one possible move, it will automatically take it, otherwise you’ll be presented with multiple choices to take. You may end the game with the right mouse button.
Extra Info –
The author’s prior experience with peg solitaire came from the fact their sister was addicted to it.
