Solitaire Board Game
(aka "Peg Solitaire")
Solitaire (also known as Peg Solitaire) is a board game for one player involving movement of pegs on a board with holes, invented in the 17th Century.
The game is known simply as Solitaire in the United Kingdom.
Some sets use marbles in a board with indentations.
According to the legend, Solitaire was invented by a French aristocrat in the 17th Century, when incarcerated in the Bastille, explaining the game's less common name Solo Noble, but no evidence was ever found to support this story.
The first evidence of the game can be traced back to the court of Louis XIV, and the specific date of 1697. Several works of art from that time show peg solitaire boards, demonstrating that the game was highly fashionable.
The standard game fills the entire board with pegs except for the central hole. The objective is, making valid moves, to empty the entire board except for a solitary peg in the central hole.
There are two traditional boards, the English, with 33 positions and the French with 37 positions.
Playing the Game
The orange balls represent the pegs and the white circles shows a hole. You move a peg by jumping it over another peg into a hole - horizontally or vertically - and removing the jumped over peg. You identify the peg you wish to move by tapping on it and then tapping on a hole, to show where to move it. If it's a successful move, the peg will be moved and the correspondent peg will be removed.
The aim of Solitaire is to be left with as few counters as possible. On the original game, the aim is to end with one peg in the center. To offer more flexibility we decided not to enforce this rule and let you finish the game with the peg(s) in any position(s). We are even offering you several start options with holes in different places.
So, enjoy the Solitaire Board Game!
