About Peg Solitaire

Peg solitaire is a board game involving a number of objects (commonly pegs or marbles) and holes formed when pegs are removed (In the beginning of the game the central peg has been removed). The object of the game is to remove all pegs except one peg that should remain in the center of the board. A peg is removed by jumping over a neighbouring peg into a vacant hole in which case the peg jumped over is removed from play creating an additional hole. There are a number of different solitaire board variants of which the English and French style boards are implemented here as an online HTML5 puzzle.

Peg solitaire is a difficult game to find a strategy for, however there are well known solutions to the game. The shortest solution to the English solitare game is made in 18 moves (including multiple jumps) of 31 jumps.
