Peg Solitaire

Period

Modern

Region

Northwest Europe

Description

Attested since 1687, with an article in the French magazine Mercure Galant, as well as in a painting by Claude Auguste Berey of Anne de Rohan-Chabot. There are two board variations, "European" which is hexagonal with three spaces per side and "English" which has the central hole in each of the six sides of the hexagon removed. Spaces take the form of holes in which pegs are inserted. Play begins with all holes filled except the central hole. The player moves a peg by orthogonally jumping an adjacent peg and removing it from the board. The goal is to remove all but one peg, leaving it in the central hole.
